Oh it looks BeAuTiFuL! Did you figure it out because the background is now black... or did you want it white?

Look to see if you have a layer above the one you are using for the mask. Also, make sure you are in RGB mode. Let me know if either of those doesn't help. And if you could take a screen shot of your layers palette I could better tell.

I love what you posted though!

Hi Miss Erica!! I just saw this tutorial and it's awesome!!

Unfortunately, when I'm about to drag the blurred photo to the calligraphed words, the photo was too small. And when I select the create clipping mask.. it didn't went on the background. Huhuhu. :( I don't know why.

I hope you can help me.


Erica McPhee:
Hi Charm,
The photo was probably a smaller resolution than your calligraphy image. Make sure it is the same resolution (dpi). If it's a smaller resolution, you can increase the resolution and it shouldn't matter too much because you are going to blur it anyway. I think it's Image, Image Size, then set resolution to match.

Once the image is the right size, make sure the clipping mask is on that layer, not the background.

Let me know if that doesn't help. And if not, explain what happens when you try to do the clipping mask.
Thanks! Good luck!

Erica I know this thread is old, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this tutorial! My friend wanted help for their wedding, and I used this style. I am a first time user of Photoshop and I am amazed at how quick and easy it is do. Thanks again!!!! Posting a photo of it here :)
