One of the most common techniques as a Photoshop user is to add text to an image or graphic. In this tutorial Photoshop Pro Nathan Fullerton shows you all the different ways you can approach Adding Text to Images in Photoshop...
Photoshop does text! In this tutorial Nathan Fullerton takes you through all the possible ways you can add text to a Photoshop project. It starts out with some introductory videos explaining how Photoshop handles text along with a review of the Photoshop user interface.
This is followed by an in-depth section that explains integrating text into an image using Text Layers and how they are formatted, arranged and sized. From there Nathan shows the technique of placing text into a separate box or "cover" and the different FX that can be applied to it. The next sections are all about adding captions and placing text on a shaped path.
Finally, Nathan wraps it all up by discussing specific types of projects: making a poster, designing a business card, and creating a promotional flyer. And, included in this tutorial are several pictures which you can use to help you recreate all of the projects on your own.

I thought this tutorial was great! I liked that Nathan recapped the steps he used at the end - it made it easier to commit to memory, and was a nice overview of each chapter before moving on. I got exactly what I needed out of watching it! Thanks!
