Learn about using the Text tool to add type to an image.
- [Instructor] Let's now add some text…to the image.…We'll select the type tool and just tap…where we want the text to appear,…and I'll type in Zeeteah.…That's much too small.…We could adjust the font size…by typing in the value, or we can just grab…one of the corner handles and scale it up.…
Double tap inside it to select it all,…and let's change the font from Arial to Asphalt.…We'll make it a bit bigger,…switch to the move tool, and now we can…position it exactly as we want and resize it…at the same time.…That looks very stark.…I want to give it a more jazzy feel,…so let's change the color of the type.…We'll open the color studio,…change from gray slider to our color wheel.…
We can drag around the circle to select the hue…that we want, and then drag inside the triangle…to change both the brightness and the saturation.…I'm going to leave it around there for now,…but we might change this later.…Next, we'll go on to see…how we can apply special effects to this.…
