Place images inside text in Adobe Illustrator
Posted on 27th March 2017
1- Open Ai and create a new art board.
2- Drag and drop your photo into the artboard.
3- Select embedded from the top toolbar, then adjust the size of your image to fit the art board.
4- Type your text.
5- Resize the text and ensure the font you would like to use is selected.
6- Remove the fill colour in the left toolbar.
7- Select the stroke option and select black or a colour you can see. this will be your guide to place the text and maximize the image you will fill with.
8- Adjust the stroke size so you can see it clearly over the image. I usually use 3 point.
9- Resize again and move text so you can see where you want the image to be in your text.
10- A clipping mask will not work unless your text is in front of your image. so to check this select your text, right click go to Arrange > Bring to front.
11- Now you have your text at the front select both the image and the text. Right click and select Make clipping mask.
12- Once you have selected the clipping mask option the image will disappear apart from the text.
The font used is from fontbundles.net and the font is called Luducudu
