Create solid shadow effect on text using Photoshop CC


Question

Is there a way in Photoshop to create the text effect seen on the words "chart" "when" and "present" in this image that does not involve drawing the shapes one at a time?

You can use Motion Blur to fake an extrusion, then use levels to flood the blurred area with a fill.

Blur a copy of your type, and merge it on a background:

Invert your original type and position to one side:

Finish by applying a stroke effect to the inside
