As you've no doubt discerned by now, Photoshop's primary mission is to correct and manipulate digital photographs and scanned artwork. If this comes as a shocker, I'm afraid you're going to have to go back and re-watch the entire series. But there are two exceptions. The culprits are text and shapes, neither of which have anything to do with correcting or manipulating digital photographs, scanned artwork or pixels in general. Text is the subject of this chapter. Shapes are coming right up. Where text is concerned, Photoshop is more illustration program than image editor. You can create single lines of type or set type inside columns. You have access to all varieties of formatting attributes, from regular stuff like typeface to weird stuff like fractional character widths. You can even warp text or attach it to a path and text layers remain forever editable, scalable and distinctly un-pixel-like.
