How To Create A Rocky Text Effect  In Photoshop. In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you the steps I took to generate a Rocky Text Effect with Space Background in Photoshop. This is an intermediate level tutorial so some steps can be tricky, but why not have a try

Along the route, we’ll be using some selection techniques, warping tool, refine edge filter, image adjustments and layer blending options. We will only be using one stock image for this whole text effect.

Printing business cards is simple and cheap when you find a great online printing company.

Here’s a preview of the final effect I have for this tutorial:


Text Flatten

Step 1

Create a new document sized 900px * 1270px with black background. Create a new layer and use the star brush we downloaded, paint some space background: (set brush opacity and flow to be around 40% for a subtle effect)


Create a new layer and use a font of your choice to type a letter on the centre of the canvas:

Warping Tool

Load the rock texture into Photoshop, and go back to our letter layer and load its selection:


Select the rectangular marquee tool, click and drag the selection onto the rock texture and select a piece from it:


Copy and paste our selection onto the text to cover it, turn off the original text layer and you will have the effect as shown below:
