OK, here’s the thing.
I need to create a picture where some text – let’s say, “This Is Anfield” – is, uh, embossed (?) on a photo.
I don’t know how to quite explain this, since I’m no graphic design expert, but I’ll plough on anyway.
The text should appear as if it is being pushed from behind the photo. You know? It’s like the photo is being pressed on to a set of letters, and … it is…. popping out??
Sheesh. This is harder to explain than I thought. No doubt there is a common technical term for what I’m trying to do, but obviously I do not know it.
So if you – yes, YOU – know what I’m talking about, or consider yourself a Jedi master in all things Photoshop, please drop me an email or contact me via Yahoo! Messenger (link on homepage sidebar).
If you could help me out here, I will forever be your humble virtual slave.
Da Inevitable Update:
Thanks to everyone for your assistance. My admiration and respect for all graphic designers has just gone up tenfold.
Anyway, this is an example of what I was trying to come up with. (I can’t show you the real image, ‘cos its all hush-hush…)
Anyway, with your suggestions and some Google-legwork, I finally got the hang of it – with GIMP, anyway. Photoshop is not my favourite software, powerful though it may be.
