Chapter 9. Working with Type > Working with Vertical Text

Working with Vertical Text

Most of the time, you’ll be using the standard, Horizontal Type tool. But you can also change your type to a vertical orientation whenever you want. One of the reasons that Photoshop Elements includes both horizontal and vertical type is to accommodate the needs of the Asian-language versions of the product, such as Korean, Japanese, and Chinese.

To create vertical text:

1.
With the image window open, click the Vertical Type tool on the toolbar (Figure 9.29).

Figure 9.29. The Vertical Type tool is located right under the Horizontal Type tool.


The pointer changes to an I-beam.

2.
Move the pointer to the area where you want to insert your text.

3.
Type your text on the image (Figure 9.30).

Figure 9.30. When you use the Vertical Type tool, your text appears in descending order (from the top down) on your image.


The characters appear in descending order on your image.

4.
To start a new line that will appear to the left of the first line, press Enter/Return (Figure 9.31).

Figure 9.31. When you press Return/Enter, another line of vertical type is entered to the left of the first.


To create and control the location of another line of vertical text, simply reselect the Vertical Type tool and create a separate, independent vertical type layer.
