    Hi everyone. I wanted to share a quick tutorial. I got nervous for some reason and made a few mistakes, but hopefully that will improve as I make more tutorials. I'm definitely not the best 'shopper here, but I hope this inspires others to share. ;) Hope it helps!

    Come on guys, you're going to compliment her "voice" just because she's a girl? Anyways, that's a nice tutorial even though I already know how to do that. However, looking at your profile picture, I'm curious, is that a rolled up blunt or just a regular cigar?

    Not really. We are going to compliment her because of the useful tutorials. However, we are going to want to see more tutorials from her because the tutorials are supposed to be useful AND she has a nice voice.

    That's a cigar, a graycliff, specifically. It was damn tasty.

    What kind of tutorials would be the most beneficial? I'm open to suggestions and I'll make more.

    Thank you for this tutorial. I did not know this was possible and was actually considering getting Illustrator to try and do the same type of style on text.

    Hi everyone!

    There is a much easier way to do this. Use CorelDraw application and look for the "place inside container tool".
    The image that you would like to use as the fill of a particular text can be seen inside the text in a split of a second.

    It's a good work but not so professional. If you want to make a good design then you need to be more professional in this.

    This was a tutorial for beginners. It wasn't intended to be overly professional. Hopefully others find it useful. Thanks.
