Cool Text Effects: Insert An Image Inside Text using Inkscape

Placing an Image within Text can be done very easily in Inkscape if you follow these simple steps below.

  • Import your Image - go to File > Import which opens the Import Window. Select the Image and click on the Open button. You can choose between Linking or Embedding your Image, then click OK so that it is placed on the page. Resize the Image where necessary.
  • Select the Text Tool and begin typing your Text. To see the special effect of placing an Image within Text, you'll need to first use a really big and bold Font, like Advert, Impact or Pleasantly Plump to name a few.

  • Select the Text and choose Path > Object to Path from the Menu Bar.
  • Select the Image, and go to Object > Pattern > Objects to Pattern.
  • Drag the Text on to the Image and Select Both.
  • On the Menu Bar, select Object > Clip > Set.
There you have it! An Image placed within Text.
