Chapter 24. Adding and Embellishing Text

IN THIS CHAPTER:

183 Add a Text Caption or Label

184 Bend Text

185 Create a Sales Sign

186 Add a Backscreen Behind Text

187 Create Metallic Text

188 Create Text That Glows

189 Emboss Text

190 Fill Text with an Image

191 Add Copyright Information

You add text to an image using one of the Type tools: the Horizontal Type, Vertical Type, Horizontal Type Mask, or Vertical Type Mask tool. You'll use the Type tools to add text; you'll use the Type Mask tools to create a selection in the shape of text on the current layer, just as you do with any other selection tool. I often use a text selection to mask a fill or adjustment layer (see 100 Mask an Adjustment or Fill Layer) or on a clipping mask (see 163 Mask an Image Layer), or as a selection I can use to copy or cut data or fill with another image (see 90 Copy Data into a Selected Area).
