Working With Text

Combining an image with Text can be a super fun and effective technique.  We start off with choosing our text and font.  With our end goal in mind, we wanted to choose a text that was thick enough for the image to show through.  After choosing a text, we adjusted the Spacing of our text to our liking.

Clipping Mask 

After we chose our Text, we brought our image into Photoshop.  From there we used a Clipping Mask to make sure the image was only shown within the Text.

Styling

From there we added a bit of Style to the image.  We used a Drop Shadow to help the text pop and stand out from the Background.  We also went in and changed the Color of the Background.
