Clipping Masks And Type – Placing An Image In Text With Photoshop

So this is a tutorial from Photoshopessentials that is a awesome site for learning Photoshop.  I did 4 different versions of Clipping Masks and the possibilities is endless.  They can be used to easily place a photo inside of text! as I did here. When we use a clipping mask with a Type layer, any part of the image on the layer above that sits directly over top of the text remains visible in the document, while areas of the image that fall outside the text are hidden. This creates the illusion that the image is actually inside the text! Let’s see how it works.
