1. First, create an image about 300 x 100 pixels, and 72 pixels/inch. Select a foreground colour of #CACACA, and fill the image, to make the background this colour.
When you've filled the background, then select your text tool, and add the text you want to add, make the colour of the text close to #3F3F3F A darker grey. Once done, you should have something similar to the image below.
2. OK, now we can add the shadow. It is as easy as adding a layer effect, and can come in very usefull for other things too. Go to Blending Options (Right-click on text layer).
Use the options below, to get the effect. You can always play around a little with these, if it does not suit. (The colour used for the shadow is #8A8A8A)
So once you have that, just click OK, and you should get your final result. It's as easy as that!
