For the past few days, I've been on a Photoshop frenzy and have been viewing great video tutorials from the basic series on TutsPlus. Other tutorials were too advanced, and I'm so glad I finally found the very basic sessions for newbies ;p
After I got accustomed to PS, I went back to the "intermediate" tutorial and finally got this gold text effect done. It doesn't look much, but it is a great achievement for me :) Didn't think I was capable of creating something decent out of PS.
I'm going crazy with the tutorials: sparkling star. They're supposed to glitter.... not sure why they aren't on the post. If you click on it, they will twinkle.
