Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Torn or ripped text, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] In this movie,…how to illustrate a concept by tearing the type.…Here's my starting point.…Let's come to the Layers panel,…and we see that we start with a layer of solid color.…Obviously we have our type.…But above the layer of solid color,…is a scan of some torn paper.…Now what I need to do is separate this…into two distinct parts.…So I'm going to come to my polygonal lasso tool,…and make a selection of the top portion of the paper.…
And then, I'll come to the Layer menu, New, Layer Via Cut,…and you can see that we now have these two layers.…I'll turn on my type, and I'll change the blending mode…of my type from Normal to Multiply,…so that we see the texture of the paper coming through.…I now need to duplicate that type, Command or Control + J,…and I'll move the copy down,…so that it is above the lower portion of the paper.…
What I need to do now is create two clipping masks.…With this layer of type, I'll come to the Layers panel,…and choose Create Clipping Mask,…or use the keyboard shortcut Command + Option…
