Easy way to make lettering show images?

Recommended Posts

I want to have a phrase made up of letters which each have a unique image within them. Imagine the letter M being filled with an image, instead of black ink.

So I cannot simply have a single image sitting behind/within each letter. How can I set an image within the lettering of each character, and then assemble them into a single phrase?

It's tough to explain, but hopefully you're getting the idea.

Not easy if you want to edit the text afterwards, but if it's a short phrase you could:

Create each letter of the phrase as a separate layer of artistic text and adjust alignment and spacing as required'

Place the images in the document and then clip them to the individual letters:

IMO this makes it slightly easier to adjust the images to fit the letterforms, while retaining the ability to edit the individual letters of the text.

Another way, if you're using Publisher, you could convert the word to curves, convert each letter to a picture frame, and then insert a picture into each one.

Can this be done in Designer too?

Not that exact way, as Designer doesn't allow conversion to Picture Frames. They're a Publisher function.
