TUTORIAL: how to make a beautiful shadowed text effect

In many situations, what you need is a subtle and yet beautiful text. The internal shadows give to this text effect an interesting 3D looking when used over the right font face.

To create the final image, go to this free text generator and configure it this way:
- Text: Shadow (I used this text as example, you choose yours);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: Arbeka.

It's the image you get (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- this effect produces a more beautiful result when used over a rounded thin font face (like the one I chose);
- if you use a dark background color, the shadows are not so eye catching;
- you can find many amazing text effects in this text generator catalog.
