Photoshop tutorial: making text photo with Angelina Jolie’s head-shot

or copy the link

tun the Annotations on so you can read the steps for your self without being confused by my accent. NEW TUTORIAL [[[[[OK this is the latest of my tutorials in this I have tried to demonstrate how to make a picture with thousands of words, it easy than it sounds, I would rate the skill level needed with Photoshop to do this one to be about a little more than a beginner. The choice of a photo you use is also critical a non dramatic straight forward head shot with not too much contrast would be ideal. Please do give many likes to this video and do comment if you can. Now just to clear this tutorial is not completely my idea I learned it from some tutorial site myself and have added few new things to it so the owner of this idea could rest assure I am not trying to take is spot.]]]]] {{{ advertisements are welcome, contact me via YouTube mail.}}}

if you have a mac hit command+backspace that should fix it

stegoxGFX says:

where can I find some good quotes written to apply to the way you did?
thanks for the reply

Smooth St says:

Whenever I press control + backspace the layer turns black

H3Y0o says:

Wait, I just realized that, after u make the color range effect, photoshop will automatically select for u. So after u apply the color range, u just create a vector mask, and you are done.

I Like How You Say 1000 😀

H3Y0o says:

Basically, he selected the shadow layer (Hold Ctrl + Left click on the shadow layer icon to select everything), then he fills the layer mask with black from the selection. Hold Alt + Left click to display the layer mask only.
Press “Ctrl + i” to invert the colors. Hope this helped.

I think I can help out. Click the Brush Tool on the left, and then click the Brush Preset button on the top (which is below the Edit and Image options if you look at the video at 3:51). It should be the last preset option. Hope it helped!

Sorry I’m being a pain lol! Have managed to input the text by right clicking to find the menu and clicking the tex. But how do I make it bigger please? Thanks! Loving the tutorial!

Kimberley Evans says:

Hey, sorry I’m a bit stuck at 3.51 when I select the brush, I can’t find the menu so the text I have from the other page doesn’t pop up. Can you please help? Thanks very much 🙂 K
