Photoshop Friday - Using Text as Clipping Masks

December 13, 2013

Welcome to Photoshop Friday.  Thanks for stopping by.  We will be using text .png's to make clipping masks to add interest and texture.  Let's begin.


Start by creating your new artwork file.


I find it easiest to open and select the files to be used thus opening them up in the Photobin below for easy access.


Using the Move Tool, drag and drop the papers and text .png into place.  Stack the paper that you want to clip to the text .png on top.


Then hit Ctrl G on a PC or Cmd G on a Mac to clip the pattern paper to the text .png (see below).


The next now has the pattern paper texture on it.  You can also do this technique by using your Text Tool and typing and using the same steps above.

I hope you enjoyed another Photoshop Friday Tutorial.  I will be back next week to share another fun and easy technique.

Wishing you a creative weekend, sweet friends.

Thank you, Sheila! I think with your tutorials I may finally be getting brave enough to try digital scrapbooking.

Have you ever heard about clipping magic…? It’s a very good technique and with the help of this you can easily remove background from an image. There are various services which you will follow in clipping magic. I have also used this service and gain its advantages.
