    I might be misunderstanding what you're trying to do. In this case the image was intended to be used as a "photo shape". Photo shapes don't actually show up in the project, they just act as a mask for a photo, i.e. the white areas are where the applied photo will show and the black areas are where it won't show. But you can definitely make shapes/images out of any font and I can definitely help you figure out whatever you want. How about this, I'll tell you how I did this and then you can follow up with any questions you have and eventually we'll zero in on what you need. So for this...

    1. I opened Photoshop and created a new document with a black background.

    2. I typed in a letter "Q" in white on top of the black, and sized it up so that it matched the size of my project canvas.

    3. I went to FILE > SAVE FOR WEB and selected "PNG24" as the format with the "transparency" option unchecked.

    4. I uploaded it to the forum.

    So that's how this particular image was created. Again, I think I might have misunderstood what you're trying to do though...
