How do you guys manage typographical images?
You know, where a picture is composed of text.
Because the text editor in Photoshop is really awkward, and it's really difficult to make a picture out of. Are there any tips or tricks for it?
An easy way is to just make a large square of text and then outline and delete the areas you don't want in your image.
As for trying to actually type out an image, I'm not sure how that's done.
It's actually really easy. Place your image over the text layer, hold Ctrl, then select the layer of your text in the Layers window. You should get a selected area around the border of your entire text. Then just click on the layer of your image, invert the selection, and delete.
I use Illustrator for this, it has a tool.

Well if you want the text to end perfectly on the edge the best way is do it by hand. If you want the look of my MGS4 box I used masks. I made MGS4 a brush with scattering, so when I painted on the work space I got random logos everywhere, I then made a mask and inserted the black and white face of snake into the mask so the black of the face cut into the words.
With a layering mask black acts as a eraser but because it's on a mask you can use white to brush the picture back to normal. So when you but a black shadows of a face into the mask it's just like a template eraser that you can edit if it needs it.
There is countless ways to do typography portraits.
My favorite way is this way... which is done by hand. Each sentence is typed on a pen line and then once all the words are on the picture he took the texture of the image and put it on the words. Very simple idea but time consuming.
I would have one text layer, and one image layer. Put the image layer on top, and hide it. Select the negative space of the text layer, then switch to the image layer, make it visible, and hit delete. It should have deleted everything except where the text is underneath it, while keeping the image in-tact.
It's kind of hard to explain.
