Adding image to contents title
I felt that having a block colour for the contents title was too simplistic and didn’t test my skill. I liked the challenge of
adding image to text in Photoshop. Also I was having problems with getting the perfect block colour for my contents
title so I thought it was more interesting to add and image instead. I went with something similar to the masthead but
not the same. The image was still holographic but not snakeskin and therefore shows variety and keeps the audience
interested. It also shows continuity of house style as the mastheads are similar. It’s italicised purposely to stray away
from the generic conventions of magazines, anchoring the obscure style of the magazine.
How i added image to text:
I used an online tutorial to find out how to add image to text in Photoshop.
It taught me to duplicate the background layer, add a blank new layer
between the two layers. Then fill the new layer white, select layer 1, set
white as my foreground, drag the text layer below layer 1, then re-select
layer 1 and create a clipping mask.

magazine segments. I still need to add more detail to page descriptions, and perhaps social

magazine more accessible to my audience.
Almost complete contents pages
Here is my almost complete contents pages; I just need to polish them up. There are some obvious
spelling mistakes and layout issues that need fixing but overall it’s nearly complete.
