Can some explain to me (in newbie terms) how I can simulate letters carved into wood?

If there’s an online tutorial that will fit the bill, even better.

Thank you.

There are multiple ways to do it, but I’ll try to explain this in the easiest way:

1] create your image, and fill it with your wood texture. 2] on a new layer, create your text
3] control + click the text layer, so that each letter is selected. 4] highlight the wood texture layer, and choose new layer via copy from the layers menu
5] Add an inner shadow. This will give you a somewhat cut in effect. Play with the settings until you get it how you want it.
6] define the edge opposite the shadow. This can be done two ways: through an inner glow, or if you want it less ‘glaring’, you can use the selection tool to move the text over and up/down by one or two pixels. This will offset the text from the rest of the texture, so even w/o a defined highlight, your mind draws an edge around the letters.

Hope that helped!
