Designing with Text Effects If a picture is

Designing with Text Effects If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture with words has even more persuasive powers. Although Photoshop CS3 is not a page-layout application, you can add text to photographs for added impact or to create an original design. You can also add special text effects to give personality to the words or even use the words alone to create the design. With Photoshop, you can apply effects to text in more creative ways and more quickly than is possible using traditional tools. Not only can you see the end result instantly, but you also have complete creative freedom to make changes without wasting any paper or ink. By combining layer styles, patterns, colors, and fonts, you can create type with just the right look for your project. You can use text on images and make the words appear as part of the photograph and, conversely, make the photo appear as part of the text. When you type in Photoshop, the text is placed on a type layer as vectors, or mathematically defined shapes that describe the letters, numbers, and symbols of a typeface. You can scale or resize the words, edit the text, and apply many layer effects to the text while preserving the crisp edges. Some commands and tools, however, require the type to be rasterized, or converted to a normal layer filled with pixels. The filter effects and painting tools and the perspective and distort commands can only work after the type has been rasterized. After the type layer has been converted, the text is no longer editable.
