|This will be my text image...|
You will be creating your headline out of another image that you think will contrast nicely in the area where you'll be placing it. I wanted the word "family" to stand out so I chose a red sky at night image (see above!).
Now you want to add your headline - you know, that great reason why you go to Notre Dame? Create a new blank document and make sure it is the same size and resolution as your Notre Dame image. Using your tool box, choose "type" and create the word or words you'll be using.
|Choose a font you think goes with your idea.|
With the image layer (sky for mine) still selected, choose Create Clipping Mask from the Layers palette menu. The image (sky for mine) is now showing through the text. I wanted to add a drop shadow for depth so I selected the text layer to make it active, clicked the Add Layer Style button at the bottom of the Layers palette and chose Drop Shadow from the pop-up menu. In the Layer Style dialog box I changed the opacity to 35% and clicked OK.
Click to select the image layer (sky for me), then Shift-click the text (family for me). then choose Link Layers from the Layers pop-up menu. A link icon appears next to the names of both layers.
You can now select the Move tool and drag the type to your Notre Dame image.
