Optional Text tutorial: version three

step one:

for a basic lesson in using pixel fonts, check out version one of optional text to be able to do this style.
Now, have your main text design already done.

step two:

Make sure the color of the text is a solid #333 (white).
Type out your text. Lyrics or a qoute.
Position it to where you want it to be.

step three:

Add a 1px gradient stroke.

step four:

Same as the previous tutorial:
On the layer Underneath the pixel text,
Zoom in to see the text closer.
Click on the rectangle tool and change the foreground color to #ffffff.
Leaving a little gap between the text and your cursor, create a rectangle around your text.
Change the opacity to 50% and add drop shadow settings of your preference.
That's literally it.
