A sunset gradient text effect

It's time to create a nice stylized gradient text effect that has a "sunset mood". It's easy to make and can be very useful.

Start by going to this gradient text effect creator, so configure the interface like explained:
- Text: SUNSET (choose your text);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: C06000;
- Font name: Berthside.

If you made as I told, you created an effect as shown below (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- this text effect is not so simple as it seems at a first moment. The letters borders, for example, are 3D and also have a nice gradient (notice they are yellow at left and red at right);
- a black background creates a nice (but different) result, so you could like to try it;
- I selected this font because it's thicker in the bottom, so it helps to get an improved sunset look;
- by using these free text generators online, you can produce many beautiful text effects.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
