Add image into text in Photoshop

Posted on 20th October 2017
1- Open Photoshop and create a new file.


 

2- Select the type tool, select your font ( i'm using Marthas Vintage font from fontbundles.net) set the font size and select the smooth option. Type your text.


 

3- Open your image in a new window.


 

4- Click and drag the image onto the text window.


 

5- Your image will now be over the text.


 

6- Select CTRL +T to select the image , then holding the shift + Alt keys, drag and resize the image over your text to fit the screen.Click enter once finished.


 

7- Right click the image layer and select Create clipping mask.


 

8- Using the move tool you can position the image where you want it to be in your text. Now we need to add a shadow to make the image/text pop on the page.


 

9- Create an new layer.

 


 

10- Click and drag your new layer below the text layer.


 

11- Select Ctrl + click on the text layer to select the text. Marching ants wil appear around your text.


 

12- Click the new layer and then select the paint bucket tool. Make sure that the color is set to black.


 

13- Click on the move tool then drag your shadow down slightly.


 

14-  We now need to blur the shadow slightly. Click on Filter > Blur > motion blur.


 

15- Adjust the blur to your needs. I used a - 50 angle and 40 pix distance. Click OK.


 

16- Your shadow is now complete to make the text pop.
