Image Filled Text

What we're making is this:

Click screenshots to make them bigger
Step 1:Make a new image filled with the Foreground color I used 420x300

Step 2: Use the text tool and type out what you want. Thick fonts work best. I used Reboard, size 150 and center justified

Step 3:Choose the select by color tool and click on the text

Step 5: Delete the text layer in the dialoge box. It will look like this

Step 6: Open the image that you want to fill your text with (It works best if the image is about the size of your text image)
Step 7: From the image go to Edit>Copy. DO NOT CLOSE IT YET.
Step 8:Go to your text and go to Edit> Paste into (Not paste, paste INTO. It won't work if you just paste) Now you can close your image.

Step 9: Move the image around if you want
Step 10: Add extras if you want. I Droped a shadow. To drop a shadow go to Filters> Light and shadow > Drop Shadow. For my shadow I made my offsets both 2, Blur raidius 10, color F9AA3B, Opacity 80. Then anchor the layer by going to Layer>Anchor layer. After you anchor it you won't be able to edit it. Then go to Select> none. I also rendered it.
