Applying Textures to Text Help Please!

    Hello all Photoshop CS3, I downloaded a .atn file that is the stars and stripes american flag that can be embedded to typed text.

    I have attempted to figure out how to apply this to my text ... but no luck. It hasn't shown up in textures, backgrounds nothing.

    I am trying to get the overlay onto USA

    Supposed to be able to just type text and the .atn file automatically adds the feature.

    This is the link of what I am talking about:

    Anyone familiar with this? Thanks, Mike

    Here's how I do it...
    First, take your stars and stripes file, and create a pattern with it.
    Select all (or whatever area you want)->edit -> define pattern.

    Then in your file w/ the text, rasterize the text.
    Select the text -> edit -> fill -> w/ pattern ->yourpatternname

    Totally different than the way you were trying but it should work.

    I have never worked with actions ........ I'll have to research that later ....... Thanks! ~M

    like shovelhead is saying you need to open your actions tab and find the preset in there and click on it then click the play button.
