In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you the steps I took to create this interesting bread text effect in Photoshop. We will be adjusting and manipulating several bread stock images to make our typography. Have a try!
This is an beginner-intermediate level difficulty tutorial.
Note: The Photoshop tutorial is done in Photoshop CC – therefore some screenshot may have slighting different layout as in the earlier version. Some brushes are exclusive to Photoshop CS6.
Here is a preview of the final effect I have for this tutorial: (click to enlarge)

OK Let’s get started!
To complete this tutorial, you will need the following stocks:
Create a new document sized 1400px * 800px with white background. Load the “bread stock image 1” and make a selection of the Croissant:
Copy and paste the selection to our document. Reduce its size and rotate it to form a letter “C”:
Use a soft eraser, remove the shadow around the Croissant:
Apply the following 2 adjustment layers as clipping masks to this letter “C” layer:
and here is the effect so far:
We will work on our next text “A”. Load the Break Stock Image 2 into Photoshop and select it:
Copy and paste the selection onto our document. Re-size and rotate this layer as shown below:
Duplicate this layer once and flip it horizontally:
Duplicate one more of this bread layer, finish the letter “A” with it:
and here is the effect so far:
We will work on the letter “F” in this step. Load the Break stock image 3 into Photoshop and select it:
Copy and paste the selection to our document. Re-size and rotate it as shown below:
Repeat the above process and copy two more pieces onto our document:
We will form the letter “F” in this step:
We will work on the letter “Y” in this step. Load the break stock 4 image into Photoshop and select it:
Copy and paste it onto our document. Re-size and then warp it into a curvy shape:
Repeat the above process, and add another piece of bread on the left side:
Then add another piece down the bottom:
And here is the effect so far:
We will add some Jam onto the bread in the step. Load the strawberry jam and select the jam part with the Lasso Tool:
Copy and paste the selection to our document. Re-size it and place it on top of letter “C”:
Warp it slightly:
Also use the Liquify Filter with the following brush setting:
This is my result after using the liquify filter:
Repeat this process and add more jams onto our letters:
We’re almost done! For final touches, use cloud brush to paint some cloud around the letters:
You can also the add some colours with a colour balance adjustment layer – I will leave this to you to experiment.
