2 Questions about Textured Text


Recommended Posts

CASE 1: Making a Profile Picture

 

I made the background layer transparent using CTRL+A+DELETE, and then I added a text. I added a new layer, and pasted a copied texture on it because I wanted to apply it on the text. The texture from the second layer is now a background, and it's behind the text. When I apply the texture from layer 2 on the text using the magic wand, it becomes just like the background. I do have a layer 3 with a different texture, but I don't know how can I apply it to the text.

 

CASE 2: Textured Text on a Transparent Layer

I made everything almost the same way as above, but now, I just want a textured text, with a transparent background. So how could I remove the layer 2 from the background, and instead just apply it to the text?

I think you need to use layers and blending modes.

 

1) make two layer a) text B) texture

2) write something in black on white background. this is text layer

3) on second layer apply the texture and change it's blending mode to lighten.

4) then flatten the layers. and select the white part and delete it.

Hi @2k25 and Welcome to the forum.

 

If you want the texture to be inside of the text, like this

Then you need to do these steps:

Good Luck :)

Thank you for your reply, but I know how to add a texture inside of the text, but I'm wondering:

1. How to add a third layer instead of the second using the magic wand

2. How to remove the background behind the text

Thank you, I will try that!

To remove a background see this video, which will also work for Text: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iRuRoZvRTU

 

Sorry, but I don't understand your first question.  To add a third layer with the magic wand? 

 

Perhaps you want to copy and paste something after using the magic wand to select it?  So, select the image with the magic wand and then go to Image - Copy - make a new layer - paste.

For textured text on a transparent background, I suggest using BoltBait's Paste Alpha plugin.

 

Make the text black on a white background.

Copy the text layer to the clipboard.

Switch to the texture layer.

Run Effects>Object>Paste Alpha, checking the Invert Calculation option.

 

There are several variations, such as:

Make the text black (or any other opaque color) on a transparent background.

Copy the text layer to the clipboard.

Switch to the texture layer.

Run Effects>Object>Paste Alpha, with the Alpha Source set to Clipboard alpha.

Paste Alpha is a plugin I use often. For making regions transparent, Erase Selection is a saw, while Paste Alpha is a X-Acto knife.

 

Never used that plugin, but it sounds just like "Alpha Mask" plugin to me. I use Alpha Mask plugin all the time for things like this....
