Create Fresh Fruit 3D Text Effect in Photoshop

In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you the process of creating fresh fruit 3D text effect in Photoshop. You will learn a few trick to render a nice and unique 3D text effect and apply various fruits around it. We will use a number filter to add some extra effect for our text.

This is an intermediate level tutorial so some steps can be tricky, but why not have a try!

Note: The Photoshop tutorial is done in CS6 – therefore some screenshot may have slighting different layout as in the earlier version. Some brushes are exclusive to Photoshop CS6.

Here is a preview of the final effect I have for this tutorial: (click to enlarge)
