The Type Mask tool allows you to “cut” letters out of a background.

  1. The first thing is to open a nice background.
  2. Then click on the Text tool from your tools palette and choose the Horizontal Type Mask.
  3. Choose a thick and large font size (Arial Bold) and click anywhere on your background. You will see a reddish color over your background. That’s fine.
  4. Type your letter on the background. Remember, you can move your mouse away from the letter and click and drag the letter around on the background until you find a good spot.
  5. Select the Move tool. Now you see marching ants around the letter that you typed. That means that is a selection.
  6. Copy (Ctrl+C) in order to Paste it (Ctrl+V) in another document.
