Layer Styles activity 2 - Layer styles and text

Row 1 - Explore layer styles on your own. Each letter uses a totally different combination of effects.

Watch this tutorial for the next 3 rows.

Row 2 - There are many web sites that offer pre-made layer style files to download for free. Many want to sell them to you. Either way, you want to download an .asl file. Then, you can load it into your styles palette.

Here are several sites that offer free .asl files:

brusheezy.com
photoshopfreebies.deviantart.com
inspirationfeed.com
photoshoplayerstyle.com
psdgold.com

Use a different layer style for each letter.

Row 3 - Use layer styles from Row 2 and then edit the layer styles to your liking.

Row 4 -Now you will download and steal "borrow" some layer styles from .psd files. This is simply another way to use layer styles.
