Eroded Text Tutorial

 

 

 

Step 1:

Open a new image in your image application. Add some text with the text tool and make sure that the text is placed on a new layer.

   
 

Step 2:

Run HyperTyle and select one of the Erosion effects from the top Main Effects combo box. "Erosion - Rough" was used here. Then select one of the Gray items from the Texture Map and click on the Back color box and select the color white. To make parts of the text transparent, please activate the "Use Transparency" check box.

If the "Use Transparency" check box should be grayed out, exit HyperTyle and make sure that the text is placed on a layer.

   
 

Step 3:

Drag the Intensity slider until you get a suitable erosion effect. Change the Fade slider to a value above zero to get a smooth effect.

   
 

Step 4:

If you don't want to use the presently opened texture, please click on the "Open Texture" to open a new one.

   
 

Step 5:

To change the erosion details, switch to the Texture tab and experiment with the Zoom. In this case Zoom was set to 50%.

   
   
 

Variation 1:

For this variation the Back Color was set to green, the Texture Map combo box was set to Colored and a different texture was opened.

   
 

Variation 2:

Variation 2 was created with the "Erosion - Dust" main effect. The "Use Transparency" check box was deactivated, the Back Color was set to Black, the Texture Map combo box was set to Colored and one of the photo textures was used. Additionally the Flat slider on the Adjust tab was set to a value of 2 to get a smoother effect.

   
 

Variation 3:

For this variation HyperTyle was first used to fill the text with a texture. The scratches were produces by using a metal texture and the "Erosion - Soft" main effect.

   
 

Variation 4:

Again the "Use Transparency" check box was deactivated. The "Erosion - Soft" main effect was used, the Back Color was set to Yellow, the Texture Map combo box was set to "Gray - Average" and the Green slider from the Adjust tab was set to 54.
