Hello in this tutorial I am going to show you on how to create Icy text! This is very easy to do intended for anyone who has Photoshop.

Items Needed:
Adobe Photoshop


1. I assume you have already launched Photoshop if you didn’t do it now! Create canvas (400px x 200px) however the size is not important, now fill it with black color.

2.Now that you’re ready, use your text tool, and type in anything you want I used Icy as text, the font is your choice I used Arial Black at 72pt, again it is up to you , you can use any Font, or any size, up to you. You should have this:

3. Now rasterize the text layer by right clicking the layer and click Rasterize Type:
