1. Make new layer with any text.

Note : Text must be in one line, it's possible with multiple lines too, but it's harder.




2. Merge all the layers




3. Take Rectangular marquee tool and make a selection under the text.

Note : You should select only 2-3 pixels under the text.



4. Take Patch Tool and drag the selection down while holding left mouse button.


You can also add some lightning effects


You're done!


Optional. Don't Deselect and go to Filters> Noise> Add noise and enter 1 in Amount.

Thanks guys wink.gif

Should I make more tutorials in your opinion ?

Yes! Totally. I really love 'em. As you know, I'm not really experienced with PS, and all these little things are much fun to learn!
