Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I got a simlar problem as this one. How do I do this if I'm using a image as the background? After I tracing and expanding the image I'll use the way described above, the one with "This is text". This doesn't work. I mean it does kind of work put the text is diveded into many little pieces. Very hard to work with.

It there any other way while doing this with an image as the background?

It's difficult to pinpoint what you're trying to do but have you tried JohnB's solution (below the one you've mentioned) that uses blend modes? –  Dominic Oct 15 '13 at 20:35
I don't understand the question at all. –  Scott Oct 15 '13 at 22:11
