Learn about a more advanced example of using clipping masks to selectively add texture to an image.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie…we saw how we could use a clipping mask…to fill text with a texture.…Here's a more involved example.…Let me just break this down for you.…On my layers panel we can see that I have four layers.…I'll hold down option or alt,…and click on the bottom of those layers.…It's just a layer of solid color fill,…above which I have a tree silhouette,…above which I have my type,…and then at the top of the layer stack…and clipped to the type,…I have the tree inverted so that…where the tree overlaps the type,…it's white, where it overlaps the background it's black.…
I'm going to come to my starting state,…and the first thing I want to do is…just make a simple selection of the tree.…I'm going to do this with my polygonal lasso tool.…So I'm just going around the edge of the tree,…and I'm staying away from any detail.…
Until I get back to the point where I began,…at this point I can double click to finish my selection.…I'm now going to make this selection into a layer mask.…So I'll come and click on add layer mask.…
