Create a quality, professional text header for your website with this technique.
Get your background and create a new text layer on top of it.
Duplicate this text layer (Layer >> Duplicate Layer)
Flip the new text layer vertically (Edit >> Transform >> Flip Vertically)
Place it right under the existing text layer and lower its opacity (42% is what I have)
Right click on the new layer and select “Rasterize Type” so that it is editable.
Now take your eraser (brush setting, 17 pixel diameter, 52% opacity worked for me) and erase through the bottom of your text a few times.
Tip: Hold shift and drag to make a straight eraser line.
Create a new layer and with your airbrush (soft, 13 pixel diameter ,100% opacity) draw a line right under your main text.
Lower the opacity of this layer (12% opacity was used here).
