Cannot achieve the Artistic Text I am looking for - not sure if this is the place to ask this!

Recommended Posts


I am attempting to make a design of text with no background.  I have found a font I want to use and happened upon placing it onto a photo.  The text has a "see through drop shadow".  I'd like to keep the image behind just that area, so that the result is the font lettering with the blue and white just showing in that drop shadow part.  I've done masking before, but have no clue on this task!  Is this something I can get help with here?

Thanks all.

A quick way is just duplicate the black text

Change the original text layer to have a black stroke with no fill colour

Then move that (lower) layer a "few" pixels to the left

But you would need to test it with your chosen font to see how it looks 



To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.
