Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Aligning multiple text layers, part of Photoshop CS6: Text.

So, for example, here I could have typed …hills of the Palouse in a Text box, I could have typed hills, Enter, of the, …Enter, and Palouse. So that each of those lines was on a …separate line. But instead, I created individual Text layers. …So, I have a layer that says Hills, I have a layer that says of the, and a …layer that says Palouse. And now, I can align these layers in any …way I'd like. Of course, at the moment, they're not …aligned at all. They're just, sort of, scattered around …in the image. But let's take a look at some of the ways …that we can align our Text layers. One thing you can do is take advantage of …the snap behavior. If I have one of my Text layers selected …and I'm using the Move tool. I generally work with the Auto Select …option turned off, so that I don't inadvertently select the wrong layer.…
