I'm trying to design a logo for my band. My idea is to have a fraction of a scenic image be duplicated in the shape of some text (my album name). I can't figure out how to do this.

Kinda like this.

Like that, but with text, not rectangles. Is there any way to do this?

  1. On your text layer, right click → Text to path.
  2. On your text work space, right click → Select → From Path. Now you have the selection on the text.
  3. Choose your background layer as active layer, then copy your selection (Ctrl+C).
  4. Paste the selection on new layer. Edit → Paste as → New layer.

    You can replace 1+2 by just Layer>Transparency>Alpha to selection (or same item in the right-click menu). – xenoid Nov 19 '17 at 14:34
