Adding Lettering over the rivets pattern
Hello,

This is my first post.
I am sorry if I am asking the obvious things but I do not know where to find a post on that.

I have a png file of the painted aircraft with rivets shown.
I want to add registration numbers ( solid color fonts) BUT I want to see the rivets underneath.

When I just use standard Text tool over the background with the rivets, they disappear. :-(

I know it can be done , I just can not find the corresponding thread.

Please help.

Cheers, AJ
