Photoshop CC One-on-One is back, and this installment teaches you how to build on your basic knowledge and achieve next-level effects with this premiere image-editing program. Industry pro Deke McClelland shows you how to seamlessly move and patch areas of a photo with the Content-Aware toolset; stretch the brightness of a scene with automatic and custom Levels adjustments; create intricate designs with text and shapes; and morph an image with layer effects and transformations. Deke also shares his techniques for sharpening details, whether addressing noise and highlight/shadow clipping or camera shake, and converting a full-color image to black and white. The final chapters show you how to best print and save images for the web, making sure all your hard work pays off in the final output.
In this movie, I'll show you how to format paragraphs of type inside of Photoshop, including how to format multiple text layers at the same time. So once again, I'll press Control 0, or Command 0 on the Mac, to center my zoom, and then I'll zoom in so I can see both of these blocks of area type which, nowadays, Photoshop also calls paragraph text. And if you want to format multiple text layers at a time, all you have to do is click on one of the text layers and then Shift click on the other one. If you want to select a range of layers, for example, or if you wanted to select multiple non-adjacent layers, then you would press the Control key, or the Command key on the Mac, and click on some portion of the layer, not the thumbnail because that'll generate a selection, but rather over here, on the right hand side of the layer.
So that's a Control click, or a Command click on the Mac, and then, if you want to turn a layer off, you Control click or Command click on it again. Anyway, I just want to see these two top text layers selected, and now let's make some modifications here. First thing I want to do is make the text black. And I'm going to do that by clicking on the little color swatch up here in the options bar. And then I'll drag the little circle down to the lower left corner of the color field, and click OK. And you have to do that by the way, you can't use that Option Delete or Alt Backspace trick on multiple layers. And now I'll press the Enter key, or the Return key on a Mac to highlight the font name. And I'll go ahead and enter in myriad the entries word and its anyone's guess which of the many myriad prostyles Photoshop is going to land on here. But, you can change the style by pressing the Tab key again to advanced to the style option and just tapping the letter R for regular, and then tap over to the size value and change it to 19 like so. And notice that all of those modifications are applied to both of the selected layers. Next I'll bring up my character panel by clicking on this little panel icon up there in the options bar. And notice this value right there. It looks like leading if you've never seen the word before, but it's leading, and it's the amount of space between each baseline. So the baseline is the imaginary line upon which each character rests. And the distance between one baseline and its neighbor is the leading. By default it's set to auto, which is 120% of the type-size value. I'm going to go ahead and override that value by clicking on that little icon, the one of the A on top of the A, and changing that value to 21, like so. And then finally, I'll click on the numerical diet layer by itself, and I'll go ahead and right align the text by clicking on this icon up here in the Options bar. All right, that takes care of the big modifications. However, I want to organize this text a little differently. If we take a look at the final version of Pout magazine, I'll zoom in here, you can see the numerical diet is serving is kind of headline and then learn to eat without swallowing is a subhead. So we need to format the first three words differently by setting them inside of an independent paragraph. So, I'll switch back to our document at hand, and I'll click right there right in front of the word learn, and I'll press the Backspace key, that's the Delete key on the Mac, and then press the Enter or Return key in order to knock that text onto a new line. Now I want to select the top paragraph. You may recall to select an entire word, you double click on it, to select an entire line of type, you triple click on it, and to select an entire paragraph of type, you click four times, one, two, three, four. And I find that it helps to count it out, and by the way, not click too quickly because otherwise if you click one, two, three, four, five times, you'll end up selecting all the text inside the frame. So, again one, two, three, four to get that entire paragraph, and now I'm going to apply some further modifications. Now because I have text selected, I can't just press the Enter key. In order to select the font option, appear in the Options bar. So I've got a click and I'm actually going to change the type style, by clicking on the down pointing arrow head, and I'll select Bold Condensed this time around. And you may or may not see all these styles by the way, but you should see Bold Condensed. And then I'll press Control Shift Alt Period a couple of times here, that would be Command Shift Option Period on he Mac, in order to increase the type size value to 39 points. And I'm going to adjust the leading from the keyboard, by pressing Alt down arrow, or Option down arrow on a Mac, in order to increase the space between the lines of type. If you want to decrease the space, you press Alt up arrow, or Option up arrow on a Mac, and if you want to apply bigger changes, then you press Control Alt down arrow, that's Command Option down arrow on the Mac, or Control Alt arrow, that's Command Option up arrow on a Mac. All right, I'm going to press Control Alt down arrow, and then I'm going to bring up my character panel by pressing Control T, or Command T on a Mac, and I can see that my leading value is now 37 points, that's too much. So I'll go ahead and select it, and I'll knock that value down to 32 points, then press the Enter key on the numerical keypad a couple of times to accept that change. Now I want to apply that same exact modification to Make Him Love You. So we'll click in front of the I and N, and I'll press Backspace and then Enter, that would be Delete and then Return on a Mac, in order to create a new paragraph. Now quadruple click on Make Him Love You to go ahead and select that. Now Photoshop does include paragraph styles, and we'll discuss them in an upcoming chapter, but for now, I'm just going to go ahead and apply those same modifications manually because frankly, this one type treatment isn't worth creating a style. So I'll click on the word regular here inside the character panel, and I'll just type in bold, and that gives me bold condensed automatically, then I'll tab to the Type Size value, change it to 39, I'll take that leading value up to 32 points. And you know what? I'm going to press Tab a few times here, to advance to this guy, which is the Horizontally Scale value because I want to increase the width of my characters just a little bit, they're too narrow at this point. So you can stretch the characters if you want, and I'm going to do so by pressing Shift up arrow and as you can see, that makes the text a little wider. If it ends up knocking the text on too many lines, as in my case, then you can hover over that right handle until you see the double arrow cursor and just go ahead and drag that frame out until the text wraps on three lines. And you know what? I need to do the same thing for the other headline. So I'll press the Enter key on the numerical keypad, in order to accept that modification. Scroll up a little bit, quadruple click inside that first paragraph, select that horizontally scale value, and go ahead and press Shift up arrow, to take the value up to 110%, and press the keypad Enter key a couple of times in order to accept that change. And we end up with these nicely formatted paragraphs. Now those of you with a discerning eye will notice that we've got a little bit of a problem with u overrunning her underarm. And on further reflection, I decided I really wanted to wrap the text like so, along the contours of that arm. And I'll show you how to do exactly that in the next movie.
