i did the glass text tutorial, and even though seeing the end result before doing it i knew thats not what i was looking for but did it any wasy for the heck of it lol

but i am thinking its called plastic text- i want the text that mostly everyone uses on most of the siggies, where the letters a somewhat bubbled, and it looks like theres a shine to it.. how do i do that? it doesnt even have to look bubbled that was just an example, but i want the shined look. where theres like that lil shine mark at the corners of the letters- KWIM?

I think the what you mean is the bevel & emboss. You would add that just like you would doing the glass text, except you wouldn't change the Technique or the Gloss Contour. Let me know if you need screen shots.

OK, type out your text like I have here.



Then click on the fx in the layer palette, where I have circled in purple here.



Then choose Bevel and Emboss like I have here.



These should be the default settings that pop up, but you can play around with it till you get the exact look you're going for. I usually just go with the default settings.



And the end result.



Let me know if you need anything else.
