pasting a texture inside a font
on Jan 20, 2008 at 6:04:00 am

I am a CS2 newbie and I am going to look this up, but it would be great if I got an answer here.

I have a font that I would like to past a sample of a texture into. Basically it is a picture of a rusty piece of metal and I would like my font to take on that color range. I assume that can be done?

Thanks,

The easiest way to do this is to use a clipping mask. Place your texture layer just above your text layer, hold down option, move your cursor just between the two layers in the layer panel and click. Alternatively, select the top layer (your texture) and go to Layer > Create Clipping Mask, or press Cmd-Opt-G.

Layer Styles also work well
