Clipping Masks on Text

Using our masking tools, you can overlay your images onto text to fill the text layers with an image of your choosing. Read along to find out how. 

Step 1: Open a new project in your Graphic Designer, or add text onto an image in your Photo Editor.

Step 2: Have your images for masking added to your Image Manager. Then go ahead and add the text you want to mask onto your canvas.

Step 3: In your Image Manager, drag-and-drop the selected image over to your text. You’ll see the text highlight as you hover over, then release the image to add it as a mask.

Pro Tip:

With image-masking text, you may find better results with fonts that have wide lettering to best show off the image you’re using as a mask.

Step 4: Once it’s been added you can adjust the placement of the image by double-clicking. The full image will show up over the mask and allow you to drag it around to get the best results.

Important Note:

When you add an image mask to text, the text can no longer be edited. It converts from text into an image, and you’ll see the Text Properties box turn into Image Properties. You'll have to undo the image mask or re-add the text to change it.

Step 6: After you have your image correctly masked, save your file and share it, or save with layers to edit later.
