The Type Tools

In case you haven't noticed previously, Photoshop's creators tend to include as many different ways as they can think of to do things. The Emboss effect in the last hour is a case in point. Working with type is another. There are three different ways to control type in Photoshop. When you select the Type Tool (the capital T in the toolbox), the Tool Options bar will display the basic type options: font, size, alignment, and a few other controls. The Type Tool options are shown in Figure 17.1. (I had to cut the bar into two pieces so that it would fit on the page.) There are also Character and Paragraph palettes that give you even more control. Let's look first at the Type Options bar.
