I would like take this and add an image such that:

enter image description here

it is only seen behind the white text as if the letters are transparent and the black background also remains, so the image appears behind both, the white text and background and only visible through the text. What is the series of steps to accomplish this if I have the black as a background layer, the "EE"s as a text layer and an image as a separate layer. Or what is the alternative set up, please provide the steps, I am not an advanced user.

EDIT: I do have some experience with the selection tool, but I have no idea how to use it in this context.
