I'm pretty sure that's a texture overlay on an oversize emboss.

The gloss is simply a layer of white above the text at a low opacity.

well if it is as ivo said, make a new layer, fill it with white, and on the layer menu, change its opacity to a lower one. Also, make sure the white layer is above the background layer.

Assuming that you have at least a basic knowledge, here we go.

-Type out your text using a relatively large font.

-Create a new layer above your text layer.

-Take the rectangular marquee tool and create a selection from a bit above your text to about the middle of your text.

-Fill the selection with white (make sure that you are still on the new layer).

-Now Ctrl+Click on the main text layer so that it selects it, but make sure that you are still editing the white layer.

-Hit Shift+Ctrl+I and then hit delete, it should delete all the white that isn't over the text.

-Now press Ctrl+D to deselect the white.

-At the top of the window there should be a setting called opacity. Lower it to around 20% (feel free to experiment here).

As to how to make a curve, you need to know how to use the pen tool for that, which I described in another thread, give me a second and I will give you the link.

Make a white layer where the shine is. In this case it comes from the top down into a wavy like shape. Kind of like sludge running down a wall. Than just lower the opacity and change the layer's blending options to overlay

looks like the text has a gradient through it, and with the wavy effect...try create a overlay that's white then play around with the opacity to make the white layer transparent

jsut an idea

The text has an inner shadow also, and the tiniest hint of a drop shadow at a 0% angle with a very low opacity to bring out the white overlay (Done with the pen tool)

The rounded text also brings out the glossiness unlike some other straighter texts.
