Adding photos to text in Silhouette

Posted on 1st February 2017
1- Open up Silhouette Studio.


 

2- Type your text.


 

3-  Select the font you would like to use. I have chosen Luducudu font.


 

4- adjust the spacing in between the letters.


 

5- Ungroup your text.


 

6- Select your letter.


 

7-  Go to File > Merge.  Select the photo you would like to add to your letter and click and drag to the letter on your design space.


 

8-  Repeat the above step with every letter.


 

9- We now need to move the image around inside the letter. to do this you need to select Fill Pattern.


 

10-  Select advanced options in the Fill pattern section.


 

11- Adjust the angle of your image.


 

12- Select Pan Pattern. A small circle will appear in the middle of your letter/image. You can move this little circle about which will adjust the photo withing the letter.


 

13- Next select scale pattern. You can adjust the image to fit your letter.


 

14-  Once you are happy with the images in the letter group them together.


 

15-  Finally to cut and print select the registration marks.


16-  This technique can be also used to fill the letters with patterns and gradients.

The font is from Fontbundles.net the font is called Luducudu.
