picture inside of text?!


Recommended Posts

1. Open your image in paint.NET.

2. Add a new layer(Control+Shift+N).

3. Fill new layer with white.

4. Write black text to new layer. Background should be white, text should be black.

5. Double click on top layer in the layers "docking" window. This should bring up the layer properties window. In this screen you want to set the blending mode of the layer to "Additive".

1: open up PDN create a new layer

2: On that new layer type your text, make sure the anti-aliasing is turned off

3: use the magic wand (with shift held) to select all of the text.

4: Create a new layer, press ctrl+i (to invert the selected area) and, on the new layer, use the paint bucket (+ shift) to fill the entire selection with white.

5: Create a new layer, move it down till it's underneath the white layer you just created and paste your picture on that layer.

6: Go ahead and delete the layer containing the original text, you won't need it anymore.

7: That should do it.

PS: These steps will only work well for the non-anti-aliased text, if you're going for a full alpha blended effect, you'll have to use the alpha mask plugin on your original image. This can be accomplished by, Creating a new image, On that image, type some text in black. Save the image as a png. Go back to your original image (the one with the face on it) and use the alpha mask plugin with the text image you just created as the mask.

It doesn't look like he's trying to get rid of the white BG, But the Alpha Import is definitely the way to go for that!

an easier way would be to paste the pic into the background, create new layer, fill with white, write black text, and with the magic wand select the text and hit delete.

EDIT:make sure antianalisizing is off, and move the bottom layer with the picture around till you get it where you want it inside the text.
