Image in text

81 posts in this topic

This is my second tutorial (I hope this one is better :wink:)

In this tutorial I will be showing you how to get a picture in your text.

Plugins needed:

-Gaussian blur

-Outline object

-Align object

step 1:

rlyetf.png

Make a new image 450x150

step 2:

Select all (ctrl + a) and then press delete or ctrl + x

step 3:

Enter your text and use align object, just leave it at middle center. (for best outcome use a fat text)

step 4:

Search an image on google and copy it.

step 5:

Add a new layer and paste the image into it.

step 6:

Go to the background layer with your text and take the magic wand. Select the text. It should now look like this.

step 7:

Go to layer 2 with your picture and press delete. You should now see something like this.

step 8:

Go to layer 2 and use the outline object effect. (I choose 4 width)

EXTRAS

Ok now you're done but to make it look even better we're going to add some extras to it.

step 9:

Duplicate layer 2 and flip it vertically. Now drag it down a bit like this.

step 10:

Use the rectangle select and make it look something like this. Then cut the selected part (ctrl + x).

step 11:

Use gaussian blur on 4.

Finished product:

Yeah sorry for the confusion :?

I maked those holes with the ellipse select in layer 2 first and then i made them in the background layer.

So get your ellipse tool. Go to layer 2 and cut out a little circle. Then you see some black. To cut that out go to the background layer and cut it out.

And the Alpha mask gives a cleaner cutout as well. I really like how you did the reflection, very nice. I use this cutout effect a lot with similar textures with contrasting colors or with photos of things that have a repetitive pattern like a comb of honey (the real thing) or a field of flowers. This is an image I did for one of my You Tube videos. The text is cut out of the graffiti on one train car and put on another. I then used the relief effect on the text to give it more texture.

Alpha mask ignores colors in the mask, not in the destination image.

Also, to get the "holes" in the B, use Magic Wand to select globally.

The reflection isn't the best. Try using a transparent gradient after you blur.

Tried it twice:

31662_f0c8708a2f96489041d260d606e9719b

On my second attempt I used SinWaves instead of blur - thought the result was a little more fun.

The skinnier fonts don't really "show" the picture but I like the overall effect.

Do you have your text on a transparent background?

Did you use the magic wand tool on the background layer and then went to the layer with the image?

Wait never mind I didn't mean to ask you that I read the rules and it said you can't make "How do I" Replys so just ignore what I asked.
