simple text graphics

Can anyone suggest a tutorial which describes how to create an image similar to the one that Google uses on it's homepage?  The text appears slightly 3d and embossed a little.

Thanks,
David

Here's a great set of text effect tutorials for Photoshop: http://www.photoshoproadmap.com/Photoshop-tutorials/Text-effects/clics/1

Try the Gel Text tutorial, which is on page 7 of the list, and then just add a drop shadow, and you should have something just like Google's text.

Here's another whole collection of text effect tutorials from another site: http://www.good-tutorials.com/tutorials/3

Have fun!
