The tut started out looking something like this, before the effects were applied:

About 4 or 5 months ago I had found one of the best 3D "raised text" tutorials for photoshop. Very realistic looking. Problem is, I can’t remember what the web page was, or who it was done by. I’ve been searching the Net all day with no result.

But I can remember basically how the tutorial went. I believe it started out with a 150×150 canvas. A lower-case ‘d’ was used as the letter to be "raised." The lower-case ‘d’ was made green, while the background was a shade of blue.

I remember the tutorial used mainly masks and alpha channels to create the "raised" effect… creating a lighter side on one side of the ‘d’, and a darker side on the other.

Well that’s about all I really remember. It was a while ago. Might anyone have seen the tutorial I’m talking about ? Thanks.

All styles are just combinations of the effects you can do yourself in the Layer Styles options, Bevel and Emboss being the one that creates the 3D effect.

You can also get some cool 3D effects using the Lighting Effects filter with the Texture Channel option.

Hi Steven, I know there are a lot of good tutorials out there for 3D text effects for Photoshop. In fact probably hundreds.

This particular tutorial I’m talking about is only one I remember because it really stood out among many of the others I’ve seen (and that’s quite a few 🙂 No lighting effects were used for this effect, which I thought was kind of cool, because it was one of the cleanest and best looking raised-text tutorials I have seen yet.
