Step 2: Open timeline panel from Window>Timeline and it will appear at the bottom of Photoshop interface, like bellow, click on triangle button, you have two choice (Create video Timeline and Create frame animation) you should select frame animation and click it to create frame.


Step 3: After creating frame animation your panel looks like the image down, there is some options and keys, like Convert to video Timeline,  Looping option, Duplicate frame, Play and puss buttons and Delete Frame.


Step 4: Now pick the type tool and write a word, I write Technig and use (Eras Bold ITC) font, you can use any text and font, align the text to center,it is very important to use a good and readable font.

Step 6: It is time to start animating the text, be careful on Timeline there is a lite complicated, the thing you should care about is frames and layers, in each frame you can show or hide any layer you want, if you do not want to show a layer just select the target frame and hide the layer you want, and be sure when you duplicate a layer it will appears on all frames, it is so easy to solve the problem just select the first frame and hide the layer that be appear on all frames and select another frame and visible the layer you want.

Step 7: Again duplicate your text layer that was rasterized and apply motion blur from Filter> Blur> Motion Blur, set the angle 90o  blur amount 12 px.
