You can create a LEGO effect in Photoshop out of any shape, text, graphics or even photos using this quick tutorial. First we'll use a pixel effect to create the blocks and than we'll add a custom made toybrick pattern. If you are looking for a more professional result you can try our LEGO toybrick Photoshop actions and you obtain a similar, but better result with just 1-click!

Advertisment

Learn how to create a LEGO text effect in Photoshop using the Pixelate>Mosaic filter. Create a new layer and fill it with a bright orange color #f19900 . Add a text layer and type something. I will use the Intro font type for my text, but you can use any font you like. Learn how to install font in Photoshop if you want to use a new font type. Use color #007aa2 for the text.

Make sure you have some shape between the letters so you have to set the tracking for the selected characters to 50.

I will add a Stroke layer style, using a darker blue color #00509b

Select the two layers, the background and the text, and convert them into a smart object

Now we'll add a smart filter to create a pixelate effect. Go to Filter>Pixelate menu and choose Mosaic. Set the cell size so that the text to be still readable. I will set the mosaic to 20 pixels.

Now we have to create the toybricks patterns that we are going to use for the text effect. Create a new PSD file, with canvas 20x20 pixels. I will zoom in the image for the preview. Fill the background layer with #949494 color.

Add a Stroke layer style like shown in the image.

Add a circle in the middle of the canvas. Use the #afafaf color

Add these layer styles to the Circle Layer to create the lego toy block.

Your LEGO toy blocks effect looks great! I see that your image edges are not blurry, I guess you used the Paint Bucket Tool to add the same color :) reply

Of course it is possible to use a font but it has to be a pixel perfect font type. It has to match perfectly with the toy brick pattern. I didn't find a pixel perfect font for this tutorial so I used this pixelate filter.

Just a heads up. Don't use the paint bucket! turn on the grid under View and create rectangles for clean lines and opaque colors.

That is a great tip to use rectangles to replace the pixels. It takes a little more time to add the rectangles but the result probably looks better. reply

To create the pixel effect is it possible to use a pixel font type instead of using the Mosaic Filter? Can you recommend one? reply
