Fancy Photos: Filling text with an image

Share
Fill text with image.  All elements created by Saving Stories  
In the example above, the word "HOME" had been filled with an image.  This is a very simple layering process that you can  do quickly in Photoshop Elements.

1.  Create a white background.  File>New>Blank File.
Create background

 
 
Text Tool

 2.  Click the Text Tool and select a bold font.  See the toolbar below.   


         
3.  Chose a large font size.  I used 60 pt here.  Type the word "HOME."  Notice you now have two layers open, the background and the text.
Type "HOME"
4.  Choose a photo to fill the text.  Open it.

5.  Click on the text to put it back onto the palette.

6.  Drag the photo from the tray below onto the text.  Make sure the photo completely covers the text.

7.  Choose "Layer" and then "Group with Previous" from the Menu bar.

8.  Click on the "eye" in the layers palette to deselect the  background layer.
Deselect background

9.  Select Layer>Merge Visible Layers from the Menu.
Merge Visible Layers



10.  Save the text as a .PSD file.  You are now ready to lay the text on any background.  We will create a background next time.
