Adobe Photoshop CS : Glows with layer effects

This Photoshop tutorial covers the details of Glows with layer effects.

1. For the first example, use a black background, and type white text on it.
2.Then right click the layer, choose effects from the menu, and choose color fill from the drop down menu. Check apply, and change the color to black. For the moment, we can't see the text at all.
3. Now choose outer glow from the drop down menu. Check apply. A slight yellow outline appears. There are lots of possibilities here! At this point, you could change the glow color, or blending mode, but I left them at the default, and brought the intensity way up to 350, and the blur up to
4. Notice I didn't even render the text. So, if I wanted to type something else, I could still click on the T, and change my type in anyway I wanted, and the effect would still apply, unless I changed it too!
5. For the second example, lets change to a white background. Type your text in Red.
6. Right click on the layer and choose effects. Use the drop down menu to go to inner glow. Change the color to black and the blend mode to hardlight. Click the center radio button to place the glow in the center, and raise the blur to 20.
7.Type your text on a white background, right click on the layer, choose effects, choose color fill from the drop down menu and click apply. Change the color to white. Then go to inner glow. Click apply. Change the color to purple, and mode to hard light. Blur to 10 and intensity to 20.
8. Type the text and bring up the effects, then go to outer glow. Change the mode to normal and intensity to 5.
9. Then click layer>effects>create layer. This separates the glow from the text, and puts it on its own layer.
10. Make the "outer glow" layer active, and make sure preserve transparency is checked. Then click on the linear gradient tool. Choose spectrum from the gradient list, and fill from left to right (holding the shift key as you drag to constrain it to a straight line). As the gradient fills the glow, it still retains the opacity, blur, and blending mode properties, but changes to the spectrum of colors in the gradient.
11. As a last thought, I used the color fill effect and filled the text with white, the same as the background, to allow the glow to show up better.
12. OK, I could go on with this all day. There are so many things you can do with layer effects. To show you one last thing, I took the glow in example 4, and made the background black and changed the blend mode to dissolve.
