Introduction

The Type tool in Adobe Photoshop has advanced far beyond its humble beginnings. When Photoshop first appeared, the most you could expect from the Type tool was to enter text. Today it's a powerful and creative tool. Not only can you place text into any open Photoshop image, you can also use text as a mask, path, or even warp text into any shape you desire. In addition, Photoshop now preserves type without rastering. That means, that type created in Photoshop will print out as fine as type created in Adobe Illustrator, or InDesign; regardless of the image's resolution. When you work in Photoshop, type becomes as creative a design element as any other available feature.

Working with the Character palette gives you the ability to select a specific font, style, and size, as well as expand or contract the space between letters with leading and kerning, or you could simply increase or decrease the physical width of the text. Baseline shifting even gives you the ability to raise or lower text off the original line. In addition, the Paragraph palette lets you create automatic breaks between paragraphs, and align rows of text left, center, right, or force justify.
