    Colin, thank you for this great tutorial! I have a question for you, and that is, is there an action for creating a typographic portrait out there somewhere? It seems that in most of the tutorials, you have to input the text dozens of times before you can overlay it over the image. There has to be a quicker way to accomplish this. Thank you in advance!
