Working in Photoshop, I have a background with 3 different colors and needed the text to adjust accordingly, set to "difference" and the text over the black and white portions of the background did as I wanted, but the text over the blue part of the background is orange. Can I change it to be either black or white like the rest of the text? Example in picture.
- Put your text into a layer group. (White text only)
- Set the text layer to difference.
- Create a "Black and White" adjustment layer above that group (not inside the group).
- In the properties of the adjustment layer, click the button at the bottom that applies the adjustment layer to only the object directly below in the layer stack (as shown).
- Configure the black and white adjustment layer as show, with every
color maxed at 300.
You can add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, which affects to orange making it black.
Whitening needs smarter tricks or brute force. The latter means: Have both white and black texts. Add to the upper text layer a layer mask, which kills the wanted areas. An example:
The layer mask is done by making a color range selection (text layers closed) and then adding a layer mask to the top text layer. The mask forms from the selection.
