A Beautiful Way to Set Your Text on Fire
Tutorials Text Effects 16396 Views September 9th, 2010

Learn how to create a fire text effect using the Wind Filter and the Liquify Tool, from this photoshop tutorial. Using a simple yet very effective technique we will add fire flames to our text effect.

I have to say that a beautiful fire text can be obtained using other methods, for example adding real fire flames using stock images for example. Or you can even use fire brushes to obtain the same effect.


Part 3

Take the Magic Wand Tool , go to Fire Effect 2 Layer and select th black area. Press CTRL+C and CTRL+V. A new layer was created. Call it Sample 3 Layer.

Go to Blending Options of Sample 3 layer and do the following settings:

Inner Glow, color #3d180c

Color Overlay , color red. With this setting you practically change the color background of the fire text; you can play with colors and bending mode of Color Overlay to obtain a nice result:

This is the result for Sample 3:

Step 9 - Text with Flames Sample 4

For this last sample I will add a texture into the scene. So hide the Sample 3 Layer and copy this beautiful old paper texture.

Place this Texture Layer right under Sample 2 Layer and change the Blending Mode to Linear Light 100%. Resize the image to have the dark frame in your canvas.

And this is the Sample 4:

Why not?? At what step did you get stuck?? See that in step 3 is very important to merge the text layer with the black background layer otherwise it won't work ! reply
