My photoshop tutorial this week took me to the world of font cut-outs. I’ve seen this many times before in movie posters.

So how did I do it? This was one of the easier projects. All you do is grab an image and drag it to photoshop,then overlay the text you want to add. After adding, you stretch and skew to the style that you want, then after adding it, you then double click on each, and do a shallow knockout of each one with a fill opacity of zero. After you are done, select all of the font layers, and hit shift-G to group and knock out the text.

I am still learning and welcome whatever challenge you want to bring.
