GIMP 2.10.4 Tutorial: Create Photographic Typography

In this GIMP 2.10.4 tutorial, I show you how to create something I call “Photographic Typography,” or text that is comprised of an element of a photo (in this case a hummingbird for the letter “H”). This cool effect uses the text tool, layer masks, and the colorize effect to create the final composition.

This is a great graphic design tutorial for beginners. It is the 2nd of 5 tutorials being released as part of our 20,000 Subscribers Celebration!
