Wood text effect

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a wood text effect in Photoshop. The wood effect is created by adding a pattern overlay on top of the text. You will need a wood texture for this tutorial. A list of free Photoshop texture can be found here.


Wood text effect

Step 1

Open a wooden texture in Photoshop.
Select Edit > Define Pattern then choose a name and click ok. This adds the texture to the library of patterns.




Step 2

Create a new Photoshop documents with the size 640 x 480. Select the text tool and type your message on the canvas like below. I have used impact font type, but you can use whatever font you wish. The wood text effect will work particularly well with chucky text.




Step 3

Select Layer > Layer Styles > Blending options. Check the pattern overlay checkbox then click the pattern drop down menu and select your wood texture.




Step 4

Now check the ‘Bevel and Emboss’ checkbox. Change the style to Outer bevel and the depth to 200% like below:



You should now have a wood text effect.

Its a long time I done use any photoshop. With so many more easy to master application out there, I don't need to use it anymore. Anyway, Photoshop is still the best for your photo.
