Setting Type

Although you might not need text features to color-correct your digital photos, you will most likely need them for doing any kind of web design. In fact, you never really know when you might need a little bit of text. Although you're better off using Illustrator or InDesign for most text needs, there will be plenty of times when it will make sense to add text in Photoshop.

To add text to your image, choose the Type tool and click in your document. You'll get a blinking insertion mark and you can begin typing. Notice that Photoshop automatically creates a new kind of layer for you—a type layer (see Figure 5.84).
