how to make text composed of image


Recommended Posts

i was reading a magazine on surfing and i saw an awesome picture, with this effect i cant seem to do. if anyone know how to do it, can u post (or send me the link) to the tutorial?

it was like a picture of a big wave. then the background was white and it had lots of names on it to credit the people who took pictuers of the waves and srfers. the names was the color of the background. here is an example:

this is a horrible job.

Are you speaking of something along the lines of this:

...?

You could also type the text in black on a white background, save this as a PNG file, then use the Alpha Mask Import plugin on the photograph.

I personally prefer the latter method.

Hope this helps, Leslieliang.

EDIT: Please, I urge you to change your topic title to reflect your request; this is outlined in the Rules. Perhaps something along the lines of 'text composed of image' or something of the like? You don't want this locking, do you? You can achieve this by clicking the 'edit' button in the lower-left of your post. :) Thank you.

Take a look at this: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3446

It's not optional. You have to read the rules to post here. :-) Welcome!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

That's no problem, if you found the first method working for you, then that's brilliant; there's no need to over-complicate matters, is there? ;)

Thank you for changing your title too, very much appreciated.

Have a good holiday, Leslieliang.
