In this episode I show you how to create this classic Chrome Text Effect in Photoshop CC/CS6. This technique can be used not only to create shiny photo realistic chrome, but almost any shape can be given a metallic appearance using this technique. As always the file created and the files used to create this effect can be found below.
The font file and image used for the reflection effect, as well as the complete final PSD can be found at this link:
