Let’s learn how to create a text mask, and make your subject of the image pop out using some simple and basic Photoshop techniques. 

One of the key steps in the process of creating this typography effect is to use the Pen tool, or other selections tools, to accurately outline the subject of the image, which you would like to pop out, and give it soft edges and shadow. In this way, they look natural and separate themselves from the text.
