Part 5. Adding Titles and Text > Adding a Talk Bubble

Adding a Talk Bubble

Oh, those wacky relatives and the wild things they say! A talk bubble can add a whimsical touch to your greeting cards and Webmail. It's actually just one of many shapes that Photoshop Elements can draw so that you don't have to create them freehand.

Right-click the Rectangle tool.

Choose the Custom Shape Tool.

Choose the talk bubble shape in the Options bar and set the Color pop-up menu to white.

Click and drag to size the shape in the image area.

TIP

Hearts and Flowers

The talk bubble--or speech balloon--is just one of an assortment of custom shapes. To pick one, after choosing the Custom Shape tool, choose the Shape pop-up menu in the Options bar.


Choose the Horizontal Type tool.

Choose black from the Color pop-up menu in the Options bar.

Click inside the talk bubble and type some text.

Press Enter on the numeric keypad when finished typing the text.
