I'll try explain as best possible...... i have lots of images that i want to add text to. I understand how to do this and using layers etc but is there a way of having the text on one layer ( say in black) and when the text goes over a black part of the image then it turns to white ? I dont know if this is possible but would help me out a great deal if it was

highlight the text you want white and change the colour...
You could also try creating a new layer above your text and then by clipping this to your text layer you will be able to use the paintbrush to change the colour of the text. You will have to highlight both layers though if you need to move the text around.
You can also try creating an invert adjustment layer and clipping it to your text and then changing the text layers blending mode to difference. This seems to invert the text according to what is below it.
Create a duplicate layer, add your text layer on top with the text in white, switch the text layer blend mode to difference. That'll work ok in some cases, but you may (depending on image) have to select your text, switch to the duplicate layer and desaturate the area behind the text on some colour images, you may even have to use threshold on the duplicate layer (behind the text)
Thanks - i'll give them a try
Nice one Wayne!
I've wondered if this was possible on more than one occasion and now I know!
