Partial text invert.

I have a black design on a white background & want to overlay black text that (is or appears to be) white where it interacts with the black design. My normal approach would be to zoom in & use the pen tool to trace over & fill the part of the text I want to appear white, but that is obviously a time-consuming process.

Just want to know if there's an easier way?

I tried changing the Blend Mode to 'Different', but that just makes the whole text a faint grey. For the purpose of the enquiry 'only' I have presented the text as a contrasting orange.

For the benefit of others, I found a simple solution to my own problem.

 

I put a Black text layer behind the design & another White text copy of that layer above the image & Raterized the white text.

I then clicked the Eye icon to hide both text layers so they didn't get caught up in the coming selection process.

Next, I used the Quick Selection Tool to select the image & Inverted the selection to encompass background outside the image.

Once again I clicked the eye icon to reveal both text layers & Selected the white text layer & cleared that part of the white text in the background (the inverted selection) area revealing the black text outside the image while retaining the white text within the design image.Renewable Icon copy.jpg

Duplicate the layer, apply whatever cookie-cutter shape you want as a layer mask, colorize away.
