This tutorial will show you how to make a series of transparent word banners.

Silhouette Banner

Step 1
Make a new transparent image, 550×225 px. Save this silhouette of Rihanna I made; here.

Step 2
Resize the silhouette to 30 in Pixel Dimensions.

Step 3
Copy and paste it into the transparent banner.

Step 4
Now I’m going to use the font Violation to write out ‘Rihanna’ and place it near the top. And the font Ghosttown to write out ‘FENTY’ underneath.

Step 5
Now go to Effects >> 3D effects >> Inner Bevel. Set your settings as mine.

Step 6
Go to Effects >> 3D Effects >> Dropshadow and set you settings as mine.

Step 7
Go to Layers >> Merge >> Merge Visible.
