The easiest/fastest way is to simply apply an image to a text using masks:

enter image description here

  • Start by inserting an image you want to use as background for the text;

  • Add the text with the Text Tool;

  • Apply the image to the text as a mask (place the image layer on top of the text layer, and use Alt + Click in the space between the layers).
