By multi-coloured text I don't mean just a different colour for each letter. I mean that the colour bleeds over from one letter to another. Here we go.

Create a New file 10” x 8” at 72ppi in RGB colour with a black background. Click on the Type Tool and set the Font at IMPACT at 150pts. The foreground colour is immaterial although I like white. Type in “COLOUR” in uppercase then on the top menu bar select Layer>Rasterize>Type. Your type layer has now become a normal editable layer.

Open the Layers Palette and you will see a small box beside the word Lock at the top of the palette. Click on it to lock the transparency, and a lock symbol will appear in the text layer. On the top menu bar go to Window>Swatches and your curser will become an Eye-dropper Tool. Select a bright colour which will change the foreground colour colour.
Then select a soft-edged brush about 40 pixels and paint over the letter C and part of the letter O. Select a different colour and repeat the process until you have changed all the letters to a different colour. Neat eh?
Jack very simple and fun tutorial. I went on to add a drop shadow and have a bit more fun. Thanks for reminding me about that transparency lock it sure comes in handy.

Here is another way of getting a similar result.

1. create the default image layer - 8x10 @ 72ppi – same as Jack’s method

2. create the text layer – also the same, but do not rasterize.

3. create a new transparent layer

4. select a soft brush – I used 125 pixel size and as soft as possible

5. use the colour palette and select a brush colour

6. paint a stroke high enough to cover the text and a generous amount more.

7. repeat steps 5 and x selecting a new colour and building up the colour layer.

8. make sure that the painter layer is active, do a ctrl+G (to create a clipping mask) or a Layer, Create Clipping mask and Photoshop will use the text layer as the clipping source and the letters are now coloured.

You can move the colour layer around, touch up any areas you may have missed, etc.

And here is another way of getting a similar effect.

The advantage of this process is that the text layer is still editable and can be reused. Any colour layer can be used – I have seen ones where an image of flames has been used, etc.

Another great way to do it John. Fascinating that there are so many ways to achieve the same results.
Lovely image Judy. Glad you found the tutorial useful
John you learn something new every day. That's what I love about Photoshop. Everyone will use their favourite way to get an effect, and we all end up at the same station.
