So I have a text layer and an abstract photo on top layer. And I want to create a clipping mask (insert the photo into the text). But the thing here is that I don't want the entire text to be clipped. Just some parts. For example I only want the "sample" from "this is a sample text" to be clipped by the abstract photo.
I tried duplicating the "sample" into another layer and then rasterizing it and then clipping the rasterized part but the text looks bold and outlines of the below text layer appear.
Also tried text selecting the "sample" with mouse and then clipping but guess that doesn't work in Ps.
Edit: Also what if I want the "sample" as well as "this" to be clipped?
Edit 2: In short how to create this effect given in the image below?
