Following are the steps to add text behind an object in Photoshop CC:
Step 1: Open an image
The picture you want to edit needs to be opened in Photoshop to start the process. Click on the “File” menu from the menu bar and navigate to “Open“. Choose the image file you want to edit from the file location and then click on “Open” from the dialog box. Your chosen image will appear on the photoshop screen.
Step 2: Select the Type Tool

Alternatively, you can also type the letter “T” on your keyboard.
Select “Horizontal Type Tool” as shown below.
Step 3: Style your text
Set the font of your text according to your requirements. The font can be changed using the “Options Bar” in the upper photoshop screen. You can also apply any character style to your text. Go to “Windows” and select “character“. A dialog box will appear, which will help you choose a character style.
Step 4: Type your text and resize it

Now, Go to the Global refinement option, drag the “smooth” slider to the right, add contrast to your image, and adjust the other settings accordingly.
After the refining is complete, click OK.
Step 9: Create a group in the Layer Panel
To create a new group, go to the Layer Panel and click on the New Group icon. You can rename the category by double-clicking it. Then, click and drag a layer of text into the group.
Step 10: Apply and Refine the Layer Mask
Go to the Output settings area and change the “Output to” option to Layer Mask. Click on OK, and we will see our text appearing behind the image.
Hence, we are done with adding the text behind an object using Photoshop CC.
