Shocking Text


Recommended Posts

These tutorials are donated to N-sane Art by generous members of the Photoshop community. We at N-sane Art edit the text and images these tutorials for clarity only when necessary in order to preserve as much of the original tutorial as possible.


Create a new image 400x400px with a “transparent” background. Rename the only existing layer “back”.


Fill ( Edit > Fill ) layer "back" with black ( Hext #000000 ).


ImpactUsing the Horizontal Type Tool, write some large text in white ( Hex #FFFFFF ). For this tutorial, I wrote “N-sane” in 80 pt with the font Impact.


Rasterize the text ( Layer > Rasterize > Text ). Rename the layer that has the now rasterized text “Text”.


Step 2 - Vertical Wind



Duplicate layer “Text” and rename the new layer “Text 2”. Hide layer “Text 2” by clicking on the eye to the left of it on the Layer Palette.


Activate layer “Text” on the Layer Palette and merge all visible layers ( Layer > Merge Visible ).


Transform the image 90 degrees clockwise ( Edit > Transform > 90 degrees CW )


Wind 1Apply the Wind filter ( Filter > Stylize > Wind ) with the method “Wind” and the Direction “From the Right”. Repeat ( Ctrl-f ) this filter.


Now, apply the Wind filter ( Filter > Stylize > Wind ) again except this time, use the Direction “From the Left”. Repeat ( Ctrl-f ) this filter.


Step 3 - Horizontal Wind


Transform the image 90 degrees counter-clockwise ( Edit > Transform > 90 degrees CCW ). We are now going to apply the Wind filter again except this time, only once in each direction.


Wind 2Apply the Wind filter ( Filter > Stylize > Wind ) with the method “Wind” and the Direction “From the Right”.


Now, apply the Wind filter ( Filter > Stylize > Wind ) again except this time, use the Direction “From the Left”.


Apply the Ripple Filter ( Filter > Distort > Ripple ) to make the light wavy.


Hue/SaturationOpen the Hue/Saturation window ( Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation ) and press Ok with the default values.


Step 4 - Final Touches



Final Shocking TextUnhide layer “Text 2” and activate it on the Layer Palette.


Select the text on the layer by pressing Ctrl then clicking on the thumbnail of the layer on the Layer Palette.


Contract ( Select > Contract ) the selection by 2 pixels. Now Fill ( Edit > Fill ) in the selection with black ( Hex #000000 ).


Step 5 - Extra


N-sane Staff Comment


This is the end of the original tutorial. We have added this following section for those of you who wish to add more contrast to the text.


First, merge all visible layers ( Layer > Merge Visible ).


Duplicate the only existing layer twice. You should now have three layers.


Change the Blending Mode of the middle layer to "screen".

Change the Blending Mode of the top layer to "overlay".


Your text should have much more contrast now!

    • Impossible to combine them just in xml, they have different target and skill types. But yeah, you can make it to work like you want, make a new skilltype or modify existing one.
    • I contacted Ave for a custom launcher on December 22, and purchased it on December 27. Ave promised to deliver after new year's eve. I gave him an extense deadline for an entire month, until January 27, which is today.   Ave stopped responding in Discord in January 13. I tried messaging him multiple times, and never received an answer again.   Yesterday, I used another account to try to get an answer from him in Skype. He answered instantly, which means he was actively ignoring me in the other account. When I told him who I was, he proceeded to block me in Skype.   I understand being busy or not having time, but he never mentioned any of those being the case. He agreed to the job and confirmed it, asked for a deadline himself, and confirmed that it would be "easily done by then". At this point he proceeded to ghost me for the rest of the month, never answering again. and never delivered anything. Sadly there is nothing to see here but a regular scam.
    • Hello.  I added this on aCis401 but i found some serious problems on the code. First of all i updated all sql queries and i removed the character_memo_alt (its useless) and instead i saved everything in character_memo. All custom edits on Gameclient.java caused a serious problem (WARNING on GS) when a players was logging out. I found this part useless too so i removed it. Then i removed all Tournament arenas and OutOfZoneTask (i found them useless too because all games are instanced). Another bug is :when a team is on countdown to port in, for those 10 seconds was able to register on another game. That caused serious issues if another team join the Q and could port your team on next game before you finish the active one. And last bug is with the pets. Instance is not handled upon teleport in arena so enemies cannot kill your pet. I fixed more things for sure but i don't remember something else big.    Its a very good system if you can manage to fix/update. I don't recommend it for live server as it is.   Keep up.
