Hey! Did you know that Photoshop has a spell checking feature? It sure does. So here we have a type layer and it's got some obvious spell checking errors there or spelling mistakes. I'm going to get my Text tool and I'm going to click inside that text frame and I find the easiest way to do this is to just right-click or Ctrl-click inside of text layer and right there in the contextual menu is Check Spelling. That brings up the Spell Checker and it's found this wrong word feading with an A and there's the correct spelling. So I'm going to go ahead and say Change. And then it finds the next word, duks, and I'll go ahead and choose that and tell it to Change.
You have the option to change all occurrences of that if there is more than one occurrence of it. You can also have its Check Multiple layers there. So, yes, indeed Photoshop does have a Spell Checker. The easiest way is to right-click inside of text layer. Or it's also under the Edit menu. You can choose it from there. Right there, Check Spelling.
