The Type Tool and Text in Photoshop
The type tool is the feature in Photoshop that allows you to add text to your image. You can format the text just like in word processors, changing the the style, color, font size, alignment, line spacing, and several other things. It is located in the side toolbar and is a point and click tool.
Simply select the type tool, click on your canvas where you would like the text to go. A blinking cursor will appear, and this is where you type your text. You can use the settings in the top toolbar to change settings like font face, font style, and font size. All text is automatically created on its own text layer. Because text is easily edited on its own layer, you cannot use tools such as the paint bucket, or any brushes to recolor it while it is still treated as a text layer.
