How to: Use Custom Shapes and Text as a Clipping Mask in Photoshop

23rd October 2014

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to use a really simple technique to create some great looking effects that appear a lot more impressive than they really are. Using custom shapes and text we’re going to create clipping masks which effectively constrain our image to the shape we’ve created.

Jo was completely fantastic! I’d been struggling to make a WordPress blog deisgn work and was completely stumped. I made an enquiry to Jo about some help, and she replied within 24 hours. It was easy to agree on a price for the things that needed to be done, and she had fixed everything within 48 hours of the original enquiry. I had thought my problem was too small for someone to help with it, but I was pleasantly surprised that Jo was happy to sort out the small issues with my site for an extremely reasonable fee. Throughout the process, Jo was efficient, effective and stayed in regular communication. She answered all of my questions, even the really idiotic ones, and nothing was too much trouble. The entire experience was great and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who needs help with a website project – big or small. She is, in short, superb at what she does.
