Using type or fonts with photos in Photoshop is very common. But to combine them together well takes experience and lots of experimentation. Thankfully, now we have a special action in Photoshop that can help us achieve different types of type/photo effects relatively easily.

In this last lesson, we are learning this Type01 action to get to that interesting result. The steps to install all Photoshop actions are the same; you just need to unzip, copy and paste OR load each required .ATN file into the Actions panel in Photoshop in order to play and execute the process.

How does the the Type01 Photoshop Action work? You simply fill in your subject with a color and play the Action! The best thing is that you can fine-tune the results until you are satisfied.

Below is a detailed video tutorial that covers how to set up your Photoshop file as well as in-depth effect customization techniques.

By the way, do note that you can choose your own photo by getting a similar one shown in the example, and do a test run after or as you watch the demo video. Take note that it’s more important for you to understand the concept and process. If you cannot succeed getting the results the 1st time, go through the video a number of times slowly to see what you have missed or done wrongly.
