How to Edit Text in Photoshop

This is for all the Photoshop newbies or beginners out there, like myself.

Finding good detailed simple instructions for Photoshop has to be harder than having your tonsils taken out.  So after struggling to find how to edit text in Photoshop, I thought I’d simplify it here for you.

It really is EASY – if only the instructions were.  🙂

Open Photoshop.  Open the PSD document that you want to edit.  Click on the ‘T’ icon in the left side bar (that is the text icon).  If the toolbar is not on the left side, click on the tab at the top called ‘Windows’ and check ‘Tools’ and it will appear.

Now, move your cursor over the text area that you want to edit and ‘right click’ and it will be highlighted.  Now you start typing the text.  You can also move this text around by moving the cursor just below the text until an arrow with crosshairs appears.  Right click and move your mouse until you have the text where you want it.  Then left click and it is now moved.

Simple.   If you have any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you.
