Text - Knockout or Transfer?
on Jan 26, 2008 at 10:51:25 pm

Hi all,

I am a relatively inexperienced and totally self-taught (meaning there are probably glaring knowledge-lapses) Photoshop CS3 user.

I want to have my text show up in a different color, depending on whether it is over the background or an ellipse.

Basically, the background layer is a light blue color. A separate layer has an ellipse which is a dark blue. A third layer has text that starts to the left of the ellipse, goes through it and extends to the right. Where the text is not over the ellipse, I want the text to be dark blue, when it is over the ellipse, I want it to be light blue.

I am sure there is a really easy solution to this that I am not seeing.

Thanks,
Mike Patterson

Maybe, try assigning a different blending mode to the text.
Select the text layer, the default blending mode is 'Normal'. Try all of the different modes, and see if any of them do the trick.

use two type layers, set with the two colors you want. Set one above and one below the ellipse layer. Clip the top one to the ellipse below by option clicking between the type layer and the ellipse layer in the Layers palette.
