As you have no doubt discerned by now, Photoshop's primary mission is to correct and manipulate digital photographs and scanned artwork. If this comes as a shock, I'm afraid you will need 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, we will see in a later one. Where text is concerned, Photoshop is a more illustration program than image editor.
You can create single lines of type or set text inside frames. You have access to all variety of formatting attributes from typeface to fractional character widths. You can even warp text or attach it to a path, and text layers remain forever editable, scalable, and distinctly unpixel-like. Here, let me show you.
