I’m going to show you a really easy method on how to put an image inside of text.
So first of all, what you need to do is you need to open up the image that you want to be inside of your text. So I went ahead, I opened up this beautiful picture of a flower. Now, I’m going to put it inside of some text. So first of all, I’m going to add text. It does not matter what color it is. Be sure to choose a font and a size for whatever you want to use it for and then add the text.
I have a big picture here so I’m going to have to make this font pretty big. Okay, so I have some text and my chosen font and size, and what you want to do now is you want to use the move tool and you’re going to move that text to go over whatever part of the image you want to appear inside of the text. So if I would it here, I’d get mainly my green, here I would get a lot of my pink, so go ahead and choose whatever you’d like. I’m going to put it right here on the center.
And then so, when I am done, I’ll have this part of the image inside of my letters. So go over to your layers palette and right click on your text layer and you want to go create work path, and this is going to create a path around your text. Now, we’re going to select the pen tool from your toolbox and then right click anywhere on your canvass, and then go to make selection and then click okay. And what that did is, since we had our text layer selected, it went ahead and just automatically selected our text.
So you want to make sure at this point that this is still selected, do not deselect it. So now, go ahead and delete your actual text layer. So I’m going to drag it down to my trashcan and our text is gone now. Now, go up to layer, and then new, and then layer via copy, and we’re going to have a copy for that text. Now at this point, we can go ahead and delete that images well, so that drag that to the trashcan. And now, we’re left with our text with our image inside of it.
And a neat effect that I like to add at the end here is a stroke around my letters. So to do that, double click on that layer, and then go down to stroke and choose whatever stroke you’d like and you could see a little bit of a preview in here. As you do, you could change the color. In fact, we can even pick one of these colors if we’d like and we can use that for our stroke. Click okay and our stroke is applied.
So that’s how you can easily put an image inside of text.
