How to do a text with shadow
To draw a text with shadow, first draw the text, then draw it in black and flip it vertically. Edit selection to make it a gradient using the magic wand and the gradient tool. You're done.
If you want the shadow to be projected according to the light, use the texture mapping tool. Copy and paste the shadow into the texture editor.
