I cannot see any difference if I use: right click on text layer > alpha to selection select background layer and press DEL Same, if I use your way but use Ctrl + , to fill the text selection with black in the layer mask. I just added a white area, so anyone can see it's a animated gif and it's working.

There's no easy solution to this. The text is quite distorted and it uses a couple different distortions. I got close by setting an Envelope to bulge at 18%. Then draw a no-fill, no-stroke rectangle in the middle of the envelope and group it with the envelope. Now apply a second Envelope set to Arch at 30%. This gets somewhat close. The no-fill, no-stroke ...

You can use a site like this http://phrase.it/ to create speech bubbles. Or and if you require a software, use PhotoScape or GIMP to create speech bubbles.

Type > Type on a Path > Type on a path options Tick the Flip box. Depending on what version of Illustrator you are using, dragging the I-beam across the path can be troublesome. The flip box does it easily and without the jerky, uncontrollable, dragging which can occur at times. But dragging, as cockypop suggest, does work as well.

I recommend using Inkscape. Create the desired path, or do "Trace Bitmap". Create a text object. Select both object and go to Text→Flow into frame. Adjust font etc. See also this and this.

As Random O'Reilly mentioned in their answer but didn't explain, you can highlight each letter while in 'type mode(?)' and choose the fill for each one separately without needing to expand it or use any destructive method.

I assumed at first you wanted a complex effect like the one displayed, ready made. The complete answer to that is bellow. If you want to fill in a single text shape in GIMP there are two basic ways: 1. Use the "Curve Bend" filter Filters->Distorts->Curve Bend on your text layer 1. Use the "Cage Tool". It is there in GIMP 2.8, and can be used for ...

Edit: I might have misunderstood you: to apply different colours separately, I am not sure if there are any other way than selecting each and applying colour individually. Select your text box, set both outline and fill to blank: in the appearance panel, select add fill Find a gradient you want to use, or create your own, and select that: Oh, I ...

As an alternative to the already great answers, how about adding a black div with 50% opacity behind the text? This would allow the font to work on basically any image also. div { position:absolute; top:250px; left:140px; width:500px; height:50px; background-color:black; z-index:0; opacity:0.5; } EXAMPLE

Give it a black transparent background and some padding background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5); padding: 0.5em; Simply play a bit around with those numbers but it should give you an usable result.

I suggest making the font bold (just a change of weight, not the font itself) and respecifying the shadow so that it defines all the edges of the letters: font-family: Raleway; font-weight:900; text-shadow: 0px 0px 3px #000; You can even combine more than one text-shadow to create a definite outline as well as a blur: text-shadow: 0px 0px 3px #000, ...

To help you think on the right terms, consider an analogy: A text document on a computer versus a sheet of printed paper. When I have a text file open on my computer, I can make whatever change I want. However, once I print, the text on that paper is unchangeable. A JPEG image is made of rows of pixels. Apart from some metadata that can give us some ...

The only way to edit any text within a JPG is to paint over it and retype whatever text you wish to replace it. There is no way to alter text as text within a JPG file.

Take a look at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmpZiXReb_k It has worked for me. Photoshop provided support for right to left reading order text in previous versions with the "Middle Eastern", or "ME" Editions. That functionality is no longer native to Photoshop as of version CS5. The options are to purchase additional software, or trick ...
