About This Class

In this class we will learn how place transparent text over an image. The text itself will be fully transparent thus allowing us to see right through it to the image below. However, it will be surrounded by either another image, or a semi-transparent colour background that allows us to see the entire image below the text, but allows us to read the text against a busy background, like a night time cityscape.

The process is sometimes called PunchOut text, or simply Transparent Text.
