How to Fill Text with an Image in Photoshop

A step by step guide Step 1: Upload a high-quality image. Step 2: Type out the text. Step 3: Create a new layer. Step 4: Create Clipping Mask. Step 5: Fill the background-color.

Filling text with an image is a great way to add some creativity to your designs. In this tutorial, we will show you how to fill text with an image in Photoshop.

First, open a new document in Photoshop and select the Type tool by pressing T. Type in the desired text and choose a dense font that allows more of the image to show up. Azo Sans Uber is a great option for this technique.

Next, bring in the sample images and place them on a layer above the text layer. To fill the text with the image, right-click on the image layer and select “Create Clipping Mask.” This will make the image visible only where the type is visible.

To fill the rest of the image, duplicate the image layer by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + J. Then, right-click on the duplicate layer and select “Create Clipping Mask” as well. Move the duplicate layer to fill the rest of the image.

To make the outlines of the letters more visible, add a stroke to the text layer. Duplicate the original text layer, add a stroke with a color sampled from the image, and adjust the size as needed.

As a bonus, you can also add an icon to your design. Place the icon above the text layer and use the same technique to fill it with an image.

This technique is a quick and easy way to add some interest to your designs. Give it a try on your next project!
