Adding realistic text to this image

I'd like to add the word "PIZZA" to the box but I'd like to look as real as possible. Any tips on doing that ? Any tutorials or similar ? Thanks in advance. Regards, Ljupco

Re: Adding realistic text to this image

You need to transform the type and give it some perspective. It looks like all you did was rotate it. An easy way to get the type to the same perspective as the box would be to draw a square path with a fill, create your type and place it on the square how you would like it. Group the two layers then transform the group. Use distort and move each of the square path's corners to the corresponding corner on the pizza box. Once you get it where you want it, either delete or turn off the visibility on the path layer.

Thanks for the advice, I'll try this out, but what I was referring to when I mentioned I wanted it to look as real as possible, was that I wanted the texture of the box to show through as if the word was printed on the box, not added later. Anyway thanks again. Regards, Ljupco

Play with the blend mode then to see if one of them will give you the look that you're after. The box is pretty much white with little texture, otherwise I would save make a displacement map for the text. If the box were a different color or had more texture you could do some blending to give it a more realistic look, but since it's pretty flat, there's not much you can do other than try and add some fake texture.

Beside the very good tips csuebele gave you, you could have a look at the following Tutorials on Displacement Maps used exactly for making an object blend seamlessly into texture, contours, folds, wrinkles of a background image as if painted on it ...



Hope this helps.
