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 did a wonderful job creating my new website — just look at it. She grasped the brief immediately, and then she added her own creative spin. I found her very easy to work with, partly because she listens attentively. She’s also been prompt and patient with my follow-up questions as I’ve learned how to navigate my new site. All in all this was an incredibly painless experience with an outstanding result. Thanks Jo
