Colouring text with pattern


Recommended Posts

Dark_King, your post makes no sense to me...

Here's the way I would do it:

1. Have your text on a layer above the pattern

2. Use Boltbait's way of outlining to outline the text (to see it, just scroll down on the linked page until you see the avatar with a guy wearing a suit that has a really cool facial hair.)

3. Going back to the original text, click with the magic wand outside the text and invert selection (Ctrl-i.)

4. Subtract any gaps (e.g. the holes in 'o's and 'e's) by right clicking

5. Copy (Ctrl-c) from the pattern layer

6. Paste on the text layer.

7. Feather as needed.

Result:

With the rectangle selection tool select a unique (non repeating) texture (start 22,21 and square width 104x104). Crop and save the model of your Tartan. Close this picture and create a new one 800x600. Use the photo flood fill and select your tartan... Then you have a big image to play with...

well it depends on hwo you understand the request...

You can remove the background as the last step, I didn't. The text really is filled with the pattern.

Edit: The border is also optional. I just thought you might want it. ;) Just ignore step 2 to make something like this:

I always use the alpha mask effect to do this kind of stuff. Make your desired text black with a white background then flatten and save it as "mask" then open up your pattern and go to effects>alpha mask and select the "mask" file, done!

Yeah, you could do something infinitely simpler and better like that. :P

I would use that technique, Bundy. You can find the Alpha Mask plugin here.
