Once I had taken my 100 photographs I needed a efficient way to add the text to them.
I scanned all the writings and created a folder for them.
I use Photo Shop CS6 for all my image processing.
- I open an image>filter>smart sharpen. This sharpens the image.
- curves adjustment layer to create a lighting style I like.
- saturation adjustment layer to create level of saturation that suits my style.
- I open the text I want from my scanned writing file.
If I am creating black text on an image I will simply cut and paste the text onto the image and change the blend mode of the writing to multiply.
If I am needing to change the colour of the text to white I will first need to select the sentences of text I want to use then make a layer copy
I will then open a new document and drop the text layer onto that, I will then go to select>colour range and make sure the eye dropper is placed on the white background.
Once I have selected the text I will go to select>inverse to select only the text. I will then drop it onto my image then change the colour of the text to white which involves going to Layer>layer style>colour overlay.
There I have my white text I will lastly flatten the image and save. At present I am saving all as PS docs so I can go back and edit if I need to. I also save them in large size jpegs, I can go back and re-size them if I need to.
