Hour 17. Adding Type to Pictures

What You'll Learn in This Hour:

If a picture's worth a thousand words, how many more is it worth if you add words to the picture? Well, never mind… The fact is, though, sometimes you have to add type to a picture for one reason or another. Long ago, Photoshop was infamous for its type handling, but the type problems have been long since solved. Now, you can add type directly onto a page, edit it, and control its leading, tracking, and kerning. You can set type vertically as well as horizontally, and you can warp it onto a predetermined path. You can set text either by clicking a start point on the page, or by dragging the Type tool to create a bounding box and then filling the box with type.
