Thank you, im glad you like it and here's what I do:
I open my image that I'm going to make a portrait of in Illustrator (it helps to turn the images opacity down like 50%) Then I create a new layer and warp all my text on that layer Then I hide the image layer and save the text as a high res PDF Then when I open it in Photoshop, I open a layer with my image, a blank white layer, and my text layer (in that order) use the magic wand tool to select one of the letters in the text layer, the go to "select" and "similar" Then with all the text highlighted, go to your blank white layer, and press "delete" then hide your text layer and there you go, only the text part of the image will show through!
Hahah that's the first time Ive tried to type out my procedure so hopefully you can get it to work. Good Luck!! please post a link on my wall if u make one! I'd love to see it!
