The Type Tools are what you will use when you want to add text to a Photoshop document. The Type Tool comes in four different variations and allows users to create both horizontal and vertical type.
The Type Tool Options Palette will always appear whenever a Type Tool is selected. This is where you can perform basic formatting to your type, such as changing font, font size, alignment, and color. But know that there are more formatting options in the Character and Paragraph Palettes.
Variations of Type Tools :
Horizontal Type Tool - The Horizontal Type Tool is your basic type tool. It allows you to create basic text on a horizontal plane.
Vertical Type Tool - This tool allows you to create basic text that is written on a vertical plane (from top to bottom).
Horizontal Type Mask Tool - This tool creates a selection of the text rather than live text. The selections can then be used to create masks and clippings.
Vertical Type Mask Tool - This tool creates a selection of the text rather than live text. The text will be formatted on a vertical plane. The selections can then be used to create masks and clippings.
The Warp Text feature in Photoshop allows you to warp your text in many different styles from an arch, to a flag, to a fisheye effect.
In video, every type and features are explained with examples. This way, you can write in a Photoshop document.
