Hellooo :] I was wondering how to do transparent text in Photoshop (CS3)
something like this: http://i43.tinypic.com/ipntza.jpg

I tried to do it with the magic wand (selection) and just erasing it, but it didn't come out nice and clean like that
somebody help me please :DDD

wouldn't you set it to white and then overlay?

Or maybe masks come into play here...

It's not transparent text it's a "Clip Mask" or "Clipping Mask"

Make the text on a layer then make a new layer above it with the design you wish (eg field bg) then clip the top layer to the bottom one using a clipping mask.
Not sure about how it works in PS but you can google tutorials. ;3
