how did you do this text? thanks! post/8681568212/you-kiss-and-make-nice-a-gentle-face-with-a-big

i made this gif a long time ago and i don’t think i have a psd, but i’ll try to explain! just to get the overlay on the text, i made it a gray color and set it to either “soft light” or “overlay” for the blend mode. in order to get the fading effect, you’ll need to use layer masks which you can access in the layer menu or in the layer palette in photoshop. 

the fading effect is created through a bunch of duplicated text layers on each frame of the gif. to start, you’ll add a layer mask to the text layer and fill it with black. this will make the text invisible. now switch to a large, round white brush (i use a 75-100px brush) and paint on the layer mask to reveal the beginning of the text. then, click on the next frame and duplicate your text layer. you’ll want to make sure ONLY your duplicated layer of the text is visible - not the first layer. now you’ll paint a little bit more with white to reveal more text. next frame, duplicate layer, paint with the brush, until you reach the last frame where all your text should now be visible. the thing you want to make sure of for it to look right, though, is that you have only ONE text layer visible on every frame. if you have a 12 frame gif, you’ll end up with 12 text layers, one for each frame.

hope that helps!!

my days end best when this sunset gets itself
behind that little lady sitting on the passenger side.
it’s much less picturesque without her catching the light
the horizon tries but it’s just not as kind on the eyes
