Task 1 How to Add Type to an Image

When you add text to an image in Photoshop, it is placed on a separate layer. It remains editable at all times—unless you intentionally convert the image to pixels for further editing (as you must if you want to apply filters that work only on raster layers) or integration. When text is added, a new layer is created. The text is the only element in the layer; all other areas are transparent. Photoshop can access all fonts in your system and makes them available through the Type Tool dialog box.

1. Select the Type Tool and Orientation

With the image you want to work with open, click the Horizontal Type or Vertical Type tool in the Photoshop toolbox.
