Learn about putting an image inside letters shapes while simultaneously having that image break out of the letters.
- [Instructor] Putting an image inside of type shapes…is one thing, but what if we want to take part of that image…and have it break out of those type shapes?…That's what we need to do here,…and this is my starting point.…So the first thing I need to do is create a clipping mask.…Very easy, very effective.…I need to drag the image layer above the type layer…and then clip it to the type layer…by holding option or alt and clicking on the line…between those two layers.…
Okay, now I'm going to undo that…because before I do that,…I need to make a selection of the top of the palm tree.…I've already done this, and I've saved it…as an alpha channel.…So I'll come to my Channels panel,…and I will activate that alpha channel…by command + clicking on its thumbnail.…So there we see the active selection.…I now need to copy this to a new layer,…command or control + j,…and then I'll go back to my image layer,…and as I did before,…clip it to the type layer beneath,…and that's the result that we get.…
