New Photoshop Tutorial - Type Tricks 2

The second tutorial about embellishing live type in Photoshop!

This one starts where the last left off, and covers adding a mask to one of the clipped layers, to fade the effect in, and changing the Blending Mode of the effect. Then we learn how to change the color of type, and how to get the gradient that we thought we were going to get with the layer style in the first video, except the Layer Style Dialog wouldn't allow it.

Finally, we learn how to use Hue and Saturation or Free Transform to tweak gradients and masks that have already been applied.

Next week, we'll finish this series by applying a mask directly to the type, and reminding you all that just because you can add all this stuff to type doesn't mean that you should. :D
