In adobe premiere pro 2020, I discovered in file- new- "legacy title" I could go under texture after creating a title, and upload a photo to become the overall texture of the text. Ive done this twice in my current video, I made one of my titles look like lava using a background photo of lava. . But I cant seem to figure out how to do the same with just text layers since this is outside of legacy titile if its possible. you can usea tool under "appearance" that looks like an eye dropper, but that only gets a singular color and not a texture of a photo.

Use the Essential Graphics panel.
import image into the EGP
Select text > Mask with text.
Text and image can be animated independently.
1. i went to the EGP
2. I made a text
3. I imported a photo into EGP which then added itslef to the video and took up the entire screen and hid the text layer i made prevously. (top right red circle in phtot you sent)
4. I clicked select "text and hit" "mask text"(bottom right red circle in photo) , but nothing happened. all i'm getting is a video of the picture I am using, not the picture masking with the text. the text is still there but still hidden behind the picture.
As you probably realized, when doing this, the text needs to be above the image/background layer in the EGP layer stack at the top of the EGP panel.
What's on top in the stack is on top in the Program monitor.
How I do this is:
Bring your picture into video track 1 in the timeline.
Bring your text into video track 2 in the timeline
Apply the track-matte effect to the picture.
In the track matte effect in the effect controls panel point the track drop down to track 2 (or the text)
