5 Different Ways to Blend Text into Your Photos in Photoshop

On this very extensive video tutorial photographer Nathaniel Dodson (from the website tutvid) gives no less than five different ways to blend text into images in Photoshop.

This is a really long and extensive video (over 30 min) so Dodson was kind enough to create a list of the subjects he covers in the video:

00:43 – Weave text effect
07:25 – Blended text effect
12:55 – Inverted color type effect
18:03 – Textured text effect
28:44 – In front/behind text effect

You can also check out his full written tutorial on his blog.

Even if you are not going to use any of these techniques in full – there are tons of smaller tips and tricks that Dodson shows during this tutorial which makes this a watch worthy video.

If you are looking for the “exact opposite” of what is show in this video – i.e. how you can use a photo to create cool looking text using Adobe Photoshop check out Aaron Nace’s video here.
