The Type Tool - Continued (v.5.x)

Photoshop 5.x Type Tool (continued)


A D V E R T I S E M E N T

As discussed previously, holding down the Alt/Option key while the type dialog box is open will change the Cancel button to a Reset button so you can undo any changes made in the dialog box. When you hit the standard Enter/Return key while working on the type dialog box, you're able to start a new line. The Enter key on the numeric keypad is the equivalent of clicking the OK button.

Type LayerOnce you've placed some text in your document, you will notice a new layer that contains the text. All type layers have a T in the layers palette. Double-clicking on the layer name will bring up the text dialog box with your text selected for making changes. If you select the type tool and click on some existing type in the document, it will also open the type tool dialog for editing.

The type layer can be moved with the move tool and further manipulated in free transform mode. Unlike ordinary layers, when you transform a type layer, the text remains crisp and sharp. When scaling type in free transform mode, remember to hold down the Shift key while dragging a corner handle to maintain the type proportions. Of course, you can make your text taller or wider using free transform mode to distort the proportions.

Layer > Type MenuWhen a type layer is active, you'll also find some additional options on the Type submenu of the Layer menu. You can convert horizontal type to vertical type, and you can render the layer. These options are also available by right clicking (Windows) or Control-clicking (Mac) on the T in the layers palette.

Rendering the layer rasterizes the text so you can paint on it and apply filter effects to the type. When type is rendered, it is converted from text to pixels; you lose the type editing and formatting options and it is no longer scalable. Before rendering a type layer, it's not a bad idea to make a duplicate of the layer first and hide the duplicate unrendered copy. This way, if you decide you need to make changes to the type, you will not have to recreate the type completely from scratch.

Here's a brief exercise that will demonstrate the differences between type layers and rendered type:

  1. Create a new document 400x400 pixels and add some text approximately 72 points in size.
  2. Duplicate the layer twice so you have three copies of the text and move the text so you can see each copy.
  3. Render one of the layer copies.
  4. Now free transform the rendered layer and scale it to fill the width of your document.
  5. Now free transform the unrendered layer to about the same size. Notice how blurry the rendered layer is while the type layer remains crisp?
    Type Layers vs. Rendered Type
  6. Now zoom in on the type layer and look closely at one of the curved letters. See how the edge pixels consist of varying colors? This is how the anti-alias smoothing effect is created.

When you use the type mask tool instead of the type layer tool, the options are the same, but when you click the OK button, you end up with a type selection rather than a filled type layer. Once you have created a type selection, it functions just like any other selection.

When you create vertical type, the type is placed with the characters upright reading from the top down. The alignment buttons change in the type dialog screen to indicate vertical alignment options. If you want to create type that can be read by tilting your head sideways, you will need to check the rotate box. This rotates each character 90 degrees clockwise. For this type of vertical type, you may find it more intuitive to create horizontal type and then use the free transform command to rotate your type as needed.

Now that you know how to create type layers and type masks, let's combine this new knowledge with what we have learned so far to create some type effects!
