In this tutorial, you will learn how to display a picture inside of text in Photoshop CS3.

This text effect uses a simple clipping mask to display images within text. Clipping masks are a good thing to know about because they can help you with more than text effects. Clipping masks allow anything to be cropped around the shape of a layer. Keep in mind that you can create some amazing text effects with clipping masks by using more than one. You can layer textures on top of each other and then expand upon it with blending options and lighting effects. Clipping masks are definitely faster than masking out a shape with the pen tool.
