Step-1: First take the new document in the size of 600X400 px with default 72 dpi, after then just fill the background with gradient orange (#fe9900) and orange red (#de2603) color combination as shown the screen shot image. Go to tool palette and select type tool (T) and then write down any name on the page.


Step-2: Now choose Bevel and Emboss, this bevel and emboss setting worksΒ in great effect to text and gives cool chisel hard and makes better 3d text effect;
Style-Inner Bevel,
Technique-Chisel Hard,
Angle-120 degree,
Altitude-30 degree,
Gloss Contour- Rounded Steps,
Highlight Mode-Screen, Color-White, Opacity-75%,
Shadow Mode-Multiply, Color-Black, Opacity-75%.


Step-3: Now select directly on Contour,change the contour elements into Ring Double, keep Range-10%.


Step-4: Now choose Inner Shadow and change the following setting as follows;
Blend Mode-Color Dodge, Color- Black,


Step-5: Take Inner Glow, This step gives cool black color glowing inside the text as well;
Blend Mode-Normal,
Contour-Linear (default element)


Step-6:Β Now select Color Overlay, it works very partially on the text so you can skip this step as well or follow if like as shown the screen shot image.
