    Hi guys

    I am trying to learn how to incorporate the fonts into the background of an image. I have been watching videos on youtube but still cant seem to do it. I have both Illustrator and photoshop installed but I prefer using Illustrator compared to photoshop. I have posted both pics in this thread. As you can see, I have created my white font over the picture but I have no idea how to make the words look like its inside / part of the background. Would really appreciate it if someone could give me a hand

    thanks!

      The thing you are trying to emulate. Look at it very closely. As in zoom in on it in photoshop.
      They've faked the grass using randome small green shapes. Maybe taken the opacity down a bit on the white too. This is a particularly fake-looking effect. Maybe it'd work at distance, say on a billboard, but not so much up close in a magazine ad.

        Try experimenting with different blending modes in Photoshop.
        Just google 'incorporating type into background photoshop'.

          Or more specifically search the web for
          Chalk on grass

          Remember to use a font that doesn't have clean sharp edges. One of the rougher chalk fonts would be a better starting point than what you used. Linework should have some sort of brush effect to it as well.

                  Hello - the following is how I'd tackle this.

                  Cmd-Click the layer of the text to select it's shape.
                  Copy that shape from the grass layer behind and copy in on top or the type.
                  Desaturate the grass texture on top, and up the contrast.
                  Using the channel palette, select the luminosity of the grass layer.
                  Apply this selection as a layer mask to the typography.

                  Alternatively - search for information on 'Luma Key', as that's the process you need here.

                  Feel free to ask questions if what I've said is unclear.

                    Just waiting for dinner to finish cooking. We are eating fashionably late this year. Mainly because the bird was larger than expected, but that 's ok.

                    You want a program that is used to dealing with vector axis data. Photoshop would probably be inappropriate.

                    The only way I can think to do this is to have a script written for Illustrator...
