A 2-3 minutes tutorial on how to create a transparent, pressed-in text effect in Photoshop is our topic this time. It’s an easy-to-do, few clicks and you’re done!
2. Double-click that layer (usually “Background” layer by default) you just made in the layer dialog box to open it, ready for any editing work. This layer will then be changed automatically as “Layer 0”.
4. Choose a font (black or any dark color, bold with sharp edges preferable, like Impact) and type the text you want. To do this, go to Tools box and click the text icon (the letter T), then choose the font you want located on the top left of your screen. After that, type your text.
