Exercise 5 - type tools: getting started

In this exercise I've been experimenting with type using fonts, sizing, colour and drop shadows to familiarise myself with the text and type options in Photoshop. I've also read the link files regarding leading, kerning, and all the other options to adjust the way type looks on the page.

I hadn't realised that there were so many options for making minute adjustments to text. It was also useful to learn about rastering and how this enables text to be treated as a shape that can be edited in the same way that an image can - although this needs to be done once the type amendments have been made as once rastered, it can no longer be edited as text.
