Filled Type

The words you paste onto a picture might be filled with meaning. They can also be filled with pictures. Here's how to do my favorite Photoshop trick.

Half the battle is finding a picture to work with. The other half is finding a nice fat typeface that leaves plenty of room for your pictures to show through. I'm working on a logo for a company called Pasta Pronto. The first thing I do is to flip through my photo files in search of some good-looking spaghetti or macaroni. I'll open the picture in Photoshop, crop it, and punch up the contrast a little more.
