Create a 400 x 100 pixel document
Step 2: Create the Text

Make the text colour black #000000 And write some text on your document:
Step 3: Convert To Shape

Step 6: Your not done yet
Finally on the layer below the layer we have been working on. Right click and select Blending Options once more and apply a Drop Shadow with these settings:
Once you've done that your text should look like this:
