Setting tool properties on the tool options bar

With the 01Start2.psd file open in Photoshop, you’re now ready to select the characteristics for the text and then to type your message.

1.
In the toolbox, select the Type tool ().

The buttons and menu in the tool options bar now relate to the Type tool.

2.
In the tool options bar, do the following:

  • Select a font you like from the first pop-up menu. (We used Adobe Garamond, but you can use another font if you prefer.)

  • Select 12 pt as the font size. (You can select using the pop-up menu illustrated below, by typing directly in the font-size text box, or by scrubbing the font-size option label.)

3.
Click once anywhere on the left side of the image and type Monday is Beach Cleanup Day.

The text appears with the font and font-size formatting that you selected.

4.
In the toolbox, select the Move tool () at the top of the column on the right.

5.
Position the Move tool pointer over the text you typed and drag the text into the misty white rectangle near the bottom of the image, centering the text inside it.
