Create an engraved text effect in Photoshop

In this video, we learn how to create an engraved text effect in Photoshop. First, start a new document in Photoshop and make it as large as you want it. Now, select the foreground color as a dark gray. Next, grab the rectangle tool and draw a shaped layer, making the color whatever you want it to be. Now, go to "layer", then "layer style", and "gradient overlay". Go to the gradient bar and mix light and dark grays or black to make a metal or chrome look as you prefer. After this, write in your text with your choice of text in white, then click on the text layer. Start a color overlay, making this a light gray color, then add an inner shadow how you prefer. When finished, save this and you're finished!
