How to Make a Shadow Overlapping Text Effect in Photoshop

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to make a shadow overlapping text effect in Photoshop.

To draw attention to your titles, you can use a variety of effects, but one that is currently popular is an overlapping shadow effect, in which each letter casts a shadow on the one before it.
