4 Easy Ways To Make Text Stand Out Using Photoshop


Don Charisma

Photoshop is a powerful tool for Photography and Graphic Design. It actually took me a long time to figure out how to get text to stand out – so in reading this you’re getting an extreme shortcut in your learning curve. Or how to do it the easy way 😉

In order to use Photoshop to make text stand out effectively YOU MUST understand how layers work. I wrote a post about how I Cartooned myself, which includes an explanation of layers. Would recommend looking at the layers part if you don’t know what layers are.

There is actually ONLY ONE WAY to make text stand out on any photo or graphic design. So we’ll start with that and add to your toolbox until we’ve given you 4 ways. From this you can build combinations and easily master making text stand out using Photoshop.

DO have patience with Photoshop…

Tree Variegated Vine Extra Skinny Towerama


Don Charisma

This tree grows just outside my apartment block. It’s got some kind of Variegated vine (Breadfruit) that grows up it. Imagine standing at the foot of the tree then moving your eyes upwards, tilting your head back as far as it will go – that is what this photo represents.

One of the thing I like to do with Panorama photography is take vertical panoramas (like this one). This one is 5 portrait orientation shots stacked one on top of another. Merged with PTGui Pro.

Enjoy 😀
