Here i will create a very simple form of the propeller, you can extend it in your test 2) Now rasterize the shape layer (right mouse button click on the layer and then click on "Rasterize layer") and assign a new ...

If you mean something like this: Edit: here's a way which only requires one HTML element and so won't be weird when read by non-CSS-styling clients like search engines, screen readers, RSS, 'no style' apps etc (thanks to Dominic for suggesting trying :before and :after). http://jsbin.com/UtUlIFO/2/edit The important code (add your colours to this): ...

Another technique to try without having to recreate the propeller from scratch. Uses the images own tonal information as a layer mask. Result: I simply duplicated the image layer, made a brightness/contrast adjustment then pasted the inverted result into the original layer's layer mask.

The fade is best done using masking. (The example you gave actually has some poor cloning in it, but that's irrelevant) Basically: 1) Create a new layer mask 2) Select the gradient tool (G) 3) Drag out your gradient, make sure it's the "black to transparent" gradient. Here's an image: As for the line, I recommend just using the pen tool. If you want ...

If you want only the effects applied to the layer and want the layer to be transparent, you can turn the "Fill" of the layer to 0% (not the opacity). This way all your blending options stay, but the layer is transparent

One quick and easy way to do this is with a Clipping Mask: I've got two text layers, one for green and one for purple. I duplicated the silhouette path and used it as a Clipping Mask for the purple text Another way is to use Blending Modes: The top silhouette is filled with blue and the Blending Mode is set to Overlay. Under that is a duplicate of ...

Quick and easy: Put your figure in the back. Set your text in the front. Turn your text into outlines. Select both. Pathfinder→Divide.

Place the text layer below the image you want to fill the text with. Hold down the Option/Alt key and click between the photo and text layer in the Layers Panel.

Text remains live so you can edit it if needed. ...

This effect could also be achieved with the Stamp filter. (Filter>Sketch>Stamp) Though that is of course not to say that it cannot be achieved with the Photocopy filter. It depends what suits the image most. Toggling the Light/Dark Balance as well as the smoothness in this filter may achieve very close to the result you want depending on the source ...

This actually looks like you might be able to do with something like inDesign or Illustrator - just create a text block, enter your text, and add / move points to the text box shape until you have your desired shape.
