Flashy Grungy Green Text
In this tutorial you will learn how to create this pretty cool text effect:
Create a blank document, size depends on the size of your text, I made it 300*300px.
Black background. White foreground.
Type your text.
Duplicate your text layer.
Use Filter --> Distort --> Polar Coordinates..
Select Polar to Rectangular.
That's about what you should get:
Turn the cancas by 90° clockwise (Image --> Rotate Canvas --> 90° CW)
Now you are going to apply the wind filter
Filter --> Stylize --> Wind..
Use it once from the right and once from the left .
Turn the cancas by 90° UNclockwise (Image --> Rotate Canvas --> 90° UCW) and use wind again, once from the left and once from the right:
Use Polar Coordinates again.
Rectangular to Polar.
That's what it should look like:
Go to Filter --> Artistic --> Cutout and apply the values shown below or change them up a bit until you get what you want.
Now all that's left to do is hitting CTRL-U to bring up the Hue/Saturation window and choose a color. The settings shown below will get you that nice flashy green.
