How to Fill Text with an Image in Premiere’s Legacy Titler Tool

Did you know that you can fill a Premiere Pro Title with an image inside the Legacy Titler Tool? I didn’t either, until about three months ago. (If you don’t already know how to create titles in this tool, read this article first.) Follow these six simple steps to learn how to do it.

To open and use the Legacy Titler tool, go up to File > New > Legacy Title.

Step 1

Type out the word you want to fill with an image. Be sure to enlarge the text and choose a thick font.

Step 2

Check the box next to “Texture.”

Step 3

Click on the square next to “Texture.”

Step 4

Select an image from your computer that you want to fill the text with.

Step 5

Align the image using the X and Y offsets.

Step 6

Stylize the text further — for example, you can add an inner or outer stroke.
