Use a clipping group to place an image inside of a background of text, with another layer of text placed in front to create depth.

    Corey, great tutorial. I was able to immediately apply this effect to a number of sports posters for my kids and niece. They loved them so much they ordered a bunch right away. You make it easy Corey. You must really love what you do!

    i really want to know how those flowers and leaf-like drawings, you know, like the ones on the flash ad above there.

    looks really cheesy with those images and typeface. a very clean look with this technique only. this is way overkill IMO. but then again its not one for a portfolio – just a tutorial, and great one to learn from.

    Im pretty new to photoshop and everytime I attempt to add my own picture the picture is HUGE. Do you know how i can adjust the size so its not as massive when I add it to my text?

    Really great tutorial. Got it to work well even in Elements by experimenting a bit to find the same commands with different names or keystrokes. A lot of fun and very educational. My image ended up not having the detail yours did (too much background showing and too many colors in the photo) – I need to experiment a lot with text size and photo choice to get it right. Thanks for a great video.

    your easy to understand and your unbelievably helpful
    video tutorials are the best and most are made horrible and confuse you from the start but i was not lost one bit during yours and it was quicker and simpler than i thought!
    Thank you more than you know! -Aisha

    This is one of my favorite tutorials!!! I used on some pictures of my friends that are graduating high school this year…. and gave the final product to them as a graduation present…..they loved it!!!!
    to add something extra to it, i erased the text covering their face and body using a soft round brush. the result was gorgeous!!!!!!!

    It used to be that if I wanted to fill text with an image, I would do Ctrl+Layer and then Paste Into the selected text. Masking makes more sense!

    Thanks for the new tricks!
