{sorry no direct link available, whats up with that?)

i like the electric font she offers to download.
But i am unsure how to get the gradiant effect on the actual text itself, as it look boring in solid color.

could anyone pls tell me how to apply this effect to text.
thanks all!

select your text layer and add an outer glow layer style
(small f button at bottom of layer panel)

play around with options until you get what you want

Please chris, don't use photoshop for text. It sucks at that. They come out blury. You are better to use Illustrator and import the text from an ai file. PS really sucks at text and I wish they would deal with the common stuff in new versions instead of all these wizz bang features that are going to hardly get used.

How do you normally approach making images with text from PS? I'm sure I can help out. The DW logo you placed on top of this website for example. I noticed it looked kinda weird, so I redid it. I must be doing something you're not doing :)

yea share share pls.
with the text creation, im usually just lazy and cant be bothered opening up illustrator.. to be honest i hardly use image ready or illustrator (but im not a guru at grahhics or anything), well image ready is good for .gifs.
