All Photoshop Tools Explained in Urdu is our first series about introduction and usage of Photoshop tools. Without getting to know how to use these Tools, it becomes very hard to do the right job the right way in any Adobe Software.

In this 43rd tutorial, we are going to learn about Type Tool. This is one of the most frequently used tools in Adobe Photoshop along with other Adobe Applications.

The use of type tool is versatile. We can type any text, format it, style it and place it the way we want or need or the way we need it to be. Adobe Photoshop’s Type Tool Sub Tool Panel has :

1) Horizontal Type Tool
2) Vertical Type Tool
3) Horizontal Type Mask Tool
4) Vertical Type Mask Tool

We discussed all Type Tools in detail. We also talked about typing on a custom pen drawn with the help of pen tool. We also drew an ellipse and typed on that circular shape.

We discussed how to change type color and how to change its orientation.

This tutorial is useful in a sense that we started with a professional discussion about tips, tricks and secrets that each Graphic or Web Designer needs to accomplish tasks the professional way. We discussed about harmony and symmetry while choosing color schemes and font families for Graphic Design Projects.

We also discussed how to warp text.

In the option bar for the type tool, we have different anti aliasing options that we discussed as well:

1- None : At doesn’t do anything. No anti-aliasing
2 – Sharp : It gives us the sharpest type
3 – Crisp: Sharp but lesser than the Sharp mode
4 – Strong : It makes type heavier
5 – Smooth: With this the type becomes smoother.

We also discussed what is difference between True Type, Post Script and Open Type fonts in conjunction with Apple, Adobe and Microsoft respectively. We briefly discussed about the difference between Serif, Sans Serif, Script and Decorative typefaces.

We also touched point type and area type with placing Lorem Ipsum text from Type Menu from Photoshop’s Menu bar.

While talking about Horizontal and Vertical Type Masks, we discussed and explored how to do clipping in Photoshop. Clipping is wonderful in a sense that the type remains editable.

And a few other tips, tricks and secrets along the way.
