Today I want to share my top 10 text tips using Photoshop Elements 15. When I first started using PSE I didn’t even know how to enter text on a layout. Since then I’ve learned a lot about type tools and entering text in ways that go beyond using a simple text box. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a simple text box is all you need but there is much more we can do when we don’t confine ourselves to that simple little box! I hope some of these tips will help you too.
Shaping it up … today we are going to explore using text for shapes in regards to our digital scrapping cards and pages. Shapes can be anything you want them to be. In addition to the “custom” shapes that come in Photoshop CC, you can also use a font to make your own shape for your project. Using a few tools, we can make a shape, and then make a path to journal inside it. Are you ready? Let’s begin!
Many digi scrappers, myself included, like to use fonts that look like handwriting to journal on their scrapbook layouts. I’ve always thought it added a nice bit of realism to my own pages. When you scrap digitally instead of using paper supplies, it’s difficult to use your own handwriting. So, we’ve all hunted for the perfect font to use.
I’d like to share a few options that are available to us to create a font from our own handwriting or the writing of a loved one.
