This tutorial shows you how easy it is to place an image in a shape with Photoshop, from a basic rectangle or circle to a fancy custom shape. Complete written version and PDF on my website: https://goo.gl/q8MnkU
For this tutorial, we'll use one of Photoshop's custom shapes, but once you know the steps, you can start placing images into any type of shape you like!
HOW TO PLACE AN IMAGE IN A SHAPE
Start by creating a new Photoshop document (0:43). Select the Custom Shape Tool (1:52), set the Tool Mode to Shape (2:19) and your shape color to black (2:47). Load Photoshop's custom shapes (3:01), choose a shape to fill with your image (4:17), and then draw the shape (4:49). Center the shape in the document (5:19).
Open a photo to place inside the shape (5:41). Select and copy the photo (5:43) and paste the photo into the document (6:11). To fill the shape with the image, create a clipping mask (6:27) and then resize and move the photo inside the shape (7:38). Change the background color (9:01) to better match the image, and then add a stroke around the shape (10:52).
To learn how to draw your own shapes in Photoshop that you can then fill with an image, check out my video where I show you step by step how to draw with the new Curvature Pen Tool in Photoshop CC 2018: https://youtu.be/prIle7eYMTY
