With Photoshop text effects, you can make most designs stand out and it is not that hard! Typography is defined as the art and technique of arranging type, type design, and modifying type glyph. With Photoshop and the right skills and techniques at your disposal, you can push the limits of Typography to the edge. This article is one of the largest categorized collections of Photoshop text effects tutorials will be able to find. All tutorials have large preview images and all links have been verified recently.

Do not forget to bookmark, share and come back because I assure you this “elephant post” of Photoshop text effects must be cut up and consumed in smaller slices! If you do so I bet your Photoshop skills will soon be hard to compete with… I have also written other posts containing tons of Photoshop effectsPhotoshop water effects and Photoshop smoke effects to sharpen your skills in other areas. You should look for inspiration on creative typography if you are running short on ideas.
