Entering Text

This is going to be a short section, because all you have to do to lay down some text is click with the Type tool and start typing directly on your image. Photoshop will automatically create a new Type layer. If you want Photoshop to act like an old Smith Corona typewriter—that is, where you have to press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) to create a new line—just click the mouse button without dragging, and begin typing. This is known as point text, and is useful for creating headlines that you don't want to wrap onto multiple lines. But if you'd rather have Photoshop automatically wrap your text into a multiline paragraph, then click and drag to create a rectangular box that will contain your text. Then you can enter your text and press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) whenever you need to create a new paragraph. Photoshop will do the rest, wrapping your text onto multiple lines based on the column width you define. While you are in the Type tool, you can always change the column width by dragging one of the side handles, causing the text to reflow.
