A Short Intro to the Photoshop Text Tool
The Adobe Photoshop Text Tool is probably the most recognizable Photoshop tool. It stands out clearly from all the other tools in that it is the only tool that deals specifically with text.
Although Photoshop is about editing photographs and creating amazing artwork, it is also used by thousands of people for graphic design work BECAUSE of the text tool. Brochures, posters, flyers and plenty of other marketing materials are created using Photoshop.
The text tool does a lot more then just let you lay out text. It has lots of extra features that let you turn text into art and design elements. I would personally never use it to create graphic design work because it is still limited in its layout capabilities. As someone who uses QuarkXpress and Adobe Indesign (true graphic design software), it just falls short in that area. But for artwork, I love it.
