Acetylene Torch-cut Metal Smallville Type
The gall! The nerve! How dare I present a metallic Photoshop effect without using Motion Blur to get that brushed aluminum look. Where do I get off presenting a tutorial like this without using a chrome-creating Curves setting that looks like one of the roller coasters at Knott’s Berry Farm? I know, I know…but, fear not. There are no Blur filters used in this tutorial nor do I mess with the Curves setting, but I think you will be pleased with this subtle weathered metal effect and the Torch-cut Layer Style.
And I managed to contrive a Smallville tie-in just in time to coincide with the show’s season premiere!
