Part 1: Creating The Main Text

  Taking a canvas size of 1900 X 1200. Of course you could pick any size according to your preference, but make sure the resolution is decent enough.
Fill the background layer BLACK.
With the Text Tool type whatever you want the text to be. I chose “Leave, but don’t leave me”, from a Pink Floyd song. “But don’t leave me” is coming later. Right now we’ll work on “Leave”. The font I have used is Futura Heavy.
  1. Right-click on the text layer, go to Blending Options to create Layer styles.
  2. On the Layer style box, go to Gradient Overlay, tick it.
  3. On the Gradient Overlay, we open the Gradient editor and make the New Custom Gradient as above. I have chosen shades of black, white and grey so that we can easily modify the colors later.
