Super Easy Neon Style in Photoshop - Screencast

Ad

Last year I wrote a tutorial showing how to create a neon effect, it was the Super Easy Neon Style in Photoshop and it was inspired by a neon sign I saw outside of a pub. So in this post we have a screencast of that tutorial provided by our friedn Ash Davies from Photoguides.net

Neons were invented by accident over 300 years ago when a scientist shook a test tube. At the time though, their discovery was useless because they had no understanding of electricity. It took another 200 years for the concept to be rediscovered, and they called their invention ‘The New Gas’, or, as it was known in Greek, ‘Neon’.

Regardless of how many times I see this image, its realism still amazes me. Neon’s are a great way to feature a title, logo or any other text, and in this tutorial we learn how to transform a simple piece of text into an unbelievable glowing neon, complete with wall mounts and a brick wall to hold it up.
