Have you ever wondered how some gorgeous Instagram accounts which you stalk are able to overlay their hand-lettered texts over an image?
Do you love modern calligraphy or are you planning on trying brush lettering?
Wouldn’t it be really great if you would be able to overlay your beautiful hand lettered work over an image and post it on your social media accounts?
Previously I wrote a tutorial on how to digitize hand lettering using the PicsArt app on your mobile phone. You can check out the tutorial and try to digitize your hand lettering using the PicArts app on your mobile phone.
What if you want to change the color of your hand-lettered text to make it pop against the background image that you have chosen? This tutorial will show you how to do that!
How to digitize hand lettering and change the color of the text using PicsArt App
- Open the photo of your hand lettering or brush lettering work on PicsArt and click “Draw”
- Tap the “Layers” icon
- Highlight the transparent layer and open the paint bucket icon — chose your preferred color
- Tap the style icon on the left side of the pain bucket and choose “Lighten”
As you see in the above image, your text is on the 2nd layer and on top of that is a transparent layer.
You would need to swap their places. You need to place your text above the transparent layer by tapping on the 3 horizontal lines on the right side of each layer and dragging it up or down.
I hope you find this tutorial useful. Ciao!
