I really need to dig into Photoshop more...

I just learned how to use this tool and I like it, it is really cool.

That's a cool process... is it complicated?

From what I've read (in 5 minutes) do I understand that each letter's image is a separate layer?

Now I have to try this one out... did you find a quick guide someplace or just rtfm?

Input! I need INPUT!

(apologies... been a 2 coffee pot day today!)

Cheers!

Ok here you go.... To the best of my meager ability...

It is fairly easy to do. Each letter and photo are separate layers to start. Layer each letter then the photo on top of it. Resize each photo to cover the entire letter, right click the photo layer in the layers palette and hit create clipping mask. After you have done that to all of the photos merge all of the letters and photo layers into one layer then use the blending options to add bevels and or shadows to your liking.

Hope that explains how to do this process easily enough.

Thanks Ron!

Very cool effect, and I'm sure I'll be using it once in a while.

Cheers!

You can also achieve the clipping mask by holding down the ALT key (PC) and placing your pen / mouse between the photo and text layer. The cursor will turn into two overlapping circles and then you just push down (pen) or left-click (mouse).

Using the other hand on the keyboard will set you free from drinking two pots of coffee.

I have done something similar to this (but much more simple looking) by opening a background and typing out a name in black letters. Then I open a photo and drag it over one of the letters. Then hit Control-G. The photo goes into the letter. If there is some of the photo showing on the next letter, just erase it. Then open another photo and drag it onto the next letter and hit Control-G again. I did this for a collage of my daughter starting with the first letter being a shot when she was four months old and the last letter being her high school graduation picture.

I believe you need to press Control ALT G if you want this to work. At least that's the way it works on my copy of CS2 on the Window's platform.
