Create a Fur Text Style in Photoshop
Tutorials Text Effects 26314 Views June 13th, 2014

Learn how to create a fur text effect in Photoshop using a effective 1-click action that you can download for free. The tutorial shows you the few easy steps that you must follow in order to obtain the best results. The furry effect is fully customizable, fully editable and you can switch through different leather textures with just a single change in the smart object layer that contains the texture/pattern image.


In this tutorial I am going to show you how to create a furry text effect in Photoshop using my fur creator. You can obtain very good results using this 1-click action. You can add any fur texture that you want with the help of smart objects.

First you have to download the fur action from our blog. It is a free Photoshop action for all our registered users. Open the ZIP file and inside you will find an ABR file, a PAT file and an ATN file.

Go to Edit>Preset manager and load the brush file and the pattern file in Photoshop, otherwise the action will not work properly. Go to Window>Actions and choose Load Actions; these steps are made only one time, when you first download the action pack.

Open a new PSD file and add a text layer with any font type that you like. I will use the Intro Font which is a free font that you can use in your designs. Learn how to install font in Photoshop . For the action to look good you have to use a big size font. Also make sure that the Set the tracking for the selected characters option is set to 50 or 100 so that the letters to have a space between them.

Before playng the action make sure you have the Brush Tool opacity set to 100% ; this is very important thing to check!

Instead of the text layer you can use a custom shape, or a raster layer that contains both text and shape. Make sure you have only one layer, so if you have a background layer please delete it. Select one of the fur actions and click the Play action button. I will choose the fur creator by psddude(custom fur texture) action which is more versatile and easy to customize.

After the action has ended you have a raw result that you can easily edit and customize using any fur texture that you want.

Make sure you have the Fill option set to 0% for the fur layer 2 by psddude.
