- [Voiceover] Hi I'm Nigel French welcome to Photoshop for designers type essentials. When we think of Photoshop type isn't the first thing that comes to mind. The reality is we often want to combine type with our imagery without having to open up other programs like InDesign or Illustrator. After going over some type basics and terminology we'll move on to the essentials of setting type using the character and paragraph panels as well as explore those lessly used options like working with open type fonts and modifying hyphenation and justification settings.
