Textured Text Effect In Photoshop

In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll look at how to create an interesting effect by adding a texture to text. Creating the effect requires nothing more than a photo to use as the texture, a layer mask, a simple image adjustment, and of course, some text! The effect works best when you use a texture that has something to do with the topic of your text, but of course, the final result is up to you.

Here’s an example of the effect we’ll be working towards:

The final textured text effect.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Create A New Document

The New Document dialog box in Photoshop. Image © 2009 Photoshop Essentials.com.The first thing we need is a new document to work in. Go up to the File menu at the top of the screen and choose New, or press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+N (Win) / Command+N (Mac). Either way brings up Photoshop’s New Document dialog box. Choose the size you need for your document. For this tutorial, I’ll create a document 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high and since I’m not planning on printing this, I’ll leave the resolution set to 72 pixels per inch. Click OK when you’re done to exit out of the dialog box. The new document will appear on your screen:

I’m going to use black as the background for my text effect, which means I’ll need to fill the document with black. To do that, go up to the Edit menu at the top of the screen and choose Fill. This brings up the Fill dialog box. Choose Black for the Contents option at the top of the dialog box. Also, make sure the Blending Mode is set to Normal and Opacity is set to 100% (these are the default settings so you probably won’t need to change them):

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.
