metal Outline Text
Make this shiny metal outline for your text by using a few layer styles:
Create a blank document of the desired size.
Leave the background blank or apply a gradient like I did, it will make the metal effect stand out more.
Type your text in any and color and a font that you like.
Right click your text layer and select Blending Options.
Apply the layer styles as shown on the pictures below:
A drop shadow:
Some Bevel and Emboss:
you might want to increase or decrease the outline's size here.
A gradient Overlay.. you might also want to just make it a single color
And finally a stroke:
That went fast huh? You're already done with your shiny metal outline text!
This is how it'll look like with reduced letter spacing:
