Although this was done in Access 2007 and was published more than a couple of years ago, this is one of my most popular tutorials. The video is brief, just over 4 minutes yet it covers the concept completely.
I did not create or write this video. However, it does a great job of showing how one can put a flag over a hand…you can do this with a floral photo over a cup, a tattoo on someone’s shoulder, etc. The effect is definitely very interesting.
This is a relatively simple process to convert a presentation into a video that you can upload to YouTube or Vimeo. Or, you can burn it to a CD or email to the recipient so they can see the actual presentation with audio. You do need a microphone hooked up to your computer.
Using clipping masks in Photoshop allows you to create text that has an image in it. You can do each letter separately or have have one word appear from the background. It is best to use a “busy” background without graphics that are too large. The example being used in this video has leaves in it.
If you want to make an image look like text, this is very easy to do. Create a text box beneath the image, do the clipping mask.
