First time post to this forum!
Hope it'll be a good one ;D
I'm importing two separately made images to photoshop; both made from Sketchbook Pro on the iPad. One is a background, the other is just a doodle.
What I've done so far is use "Color Range..." to remove just the black, then apply the "Darken" effect within the Layers Pallette.
What I must know is how to use my doodle layer as a mask; to use the texture from the background image in the doodles brush strokes, but not be seen in the areas that used to be black.
I aim to use this effect in many kinds of imported images made from my iPad, as well as handwritten graphics. I trust this would be very simple to use with actual typed-out text, but I'm having difficulty to find pre-existing solutions.
Thanks, folks! Hope this is helpful to others later on!
Put the face on top of the other layer, Alt+click on the separation line between the layers - bingo, you have created a layer mask.
