Notice the fx (Effects) icon in the lower left area of the Layers Palette. This is used to style a layer — adding a blur, drop shadow, emboss.

The Layer Style dialog box displays. Note the list of available styles on the left-hand side.
Check Drop Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, and Satin. Click OK.
Your image canvas should look similar to the one shown below.
If you feel daring, select the fx icon again and experiment with the layer styles. Stop when you are happy with your text. Remember Edit, Undo (or Ctrl+Z keys) can help to correct any mistakes.
