I'll be showing you how to add a texture over a text today, to give it a very nice effect that will look nice especiallly on 3D text that has been rendered. First, we'll start off with a document that's around 800 x 500px, and has a transparent background content. This can vary if you have other text, but you want to make sure the text is pre rendered and in png file format. Drag the text into the document, like so.

The text I have rendered is a nice glossy C4D text, so it already looks somewhat nice. Next, drag in a texture. In this case, I'll be using an icy grunge type texture. It looks very nice, and is one of the best textures to use. Drag the texture into the same document in PS.

Now, make sure the texture is lined up on the text. Press CTRL on the layer with the text. It should appear like so.

Click inside of the outlined text, and it should appear as a scissor cutting. Once this is complete, go to Select > Inverse. Then press delete. This should delete all of the residue from the past texture we just cut out.

Next, select the layer with the cut out texture, and change the layer to soft light. Then lower the opacity a bit to give it a nice feel to it. The final outcome should look very nice. Thanks, and I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
