How to make a glossy, patriotic, flag logo in Adobe Photoshop

This post is a step-by-step guide on how you can design a glossy logo for your business or blog using Adobe Photoshop. This is a relatively simple tutorial and it shouldn't take you very long to get the hang of it. However, if you're having trouble feel free to comment below and I will gladly help you out.

Let's begin!

First of all, start up Adobe Photoshop.

Now, create a new project

Use the settings below (optional)

A fresh new canvas should pop up before you on clicking "OK"

Next, select the "Horizontal Type Tool" from the tool bar

Type in your company's name

Use the top toolbar to open a new image.

For this tutorial, I will use my country's flag.
If you want to use this for your project as well, You can get it from here: https://image.ibb.co/bxVKj8/pakflag.jpg

The image should open up besides your previous project

Drag the new window (from where it says "pakflag.jpg @ 100% (RGB/8)...") to the center of your screen. We're doing this so that we can have both windows open simultaneously.

Now, drag the flag onto the old project layer.

Right click on the flag and click "Free Transform"

Adjust the size of the image so that it approximately fits around the text.

This is a reasonable attempt:

Click the "Commit transform" button to proceed.

Brace yourselves, because here comes the trickiest part of this tutorial.
Hold your control key and click on the "T" symbol next to the text layer.

The result should be this:

Next, click the "Add Layer Mask" button, as demonstrated below.

Success! We've effectively integrated the text layer and the flag image.
But it's not over yet; We're now going to make some more adjustments.

Click the eye next to the Background layer to hide the background.

Click the "fx" button and select "Blending Options"

A new window should show up. In this new window, first tick "Stroke" and copy the settings I've used or use your own if you wish.

Also, tick Drop Shadow and adjust the settings.

Click "OK" to apply the new settings.

Create a New Layer

Once again, hold the control key and click the "T" button next to the text layer.

From the sidebar, select the Paint Bucket Tool.

Left click on the text to make it all white.

Select the "Rectangular Marquee Tool" from the sidebar.

Right click anywhere on the layer and first click deselect.

Now, select approximately half the text (horizontally) and cut it.

Left click on the 100% next to "Opacity:".

Turn it down to anything around 30%

Click the "Create new fill or adjustment layer" button and select Brightness/Contrast, as shown below:

Adjust the brightness and contrast values until the image looks perfect

And that sums up this tutorial!
