Steps to Create neon effect
Create a RBG file & place a 100% black box as background. CMYK file doesn’t give you proper light effect.
Step 02 – Add a text layer, try to use fonts with thin lines.
Convert text into “Type > Create Outline“.
Step 03 – Apply Offset path from Object – Path.
It will create new layers, group them all.
Step 04 – Give them color, lighter one on top layer group, it will give feel like a bright light.
Step 05 – Apply Guassian Blur from “Effects – Blur“. Create 3 copies of back dark layer, apply different level of blurness to every layer. First layer i apply Radius “10” pixels.
Second layer, apply Radius “65” pixels.
Third layer, apply Radius “95” pixels, this was the last step to create neon effect.
