Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Word in word, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] In this movie I'd like to show you…a simple technique for creating a word within a word.…And if we come to the finished file…and to the layers panel…we can see that I have two words.…They are the same size.…Both have the same number of letters…and obviously here I'm playing with antonyms or opposites.…So what I want to do is clip one word to the other word…and I can do that simply by selecting it…and then holding down the option or alt key,…clicking on the line that separates them.…
And then that's going to clip the top layer…to the layer beneath.…And that really is it.…Of course we could do it the other way around.…I could switch the order here…and then we can clip this like so.…It's just a question of creating a clipping mask,…Command + Option + G or Control + Alt + G.…
