    The technical name for text in photoshop that is clear, meaning you can see the layer underneath it as the fill?

    Hmmm .. not sure what you mean.
    You can do such an effect by doing a Layer Mask - using the text outline as the mask for the layer below it.
    Not sure if that helps or not....

    I was not sure if you were looking for a name or a tool in PS. It's called a knockout but you will not find that as tool in PS. Both ways you guys are doing it will work fine.
