Adobe Photoshop Tricks

Can using text on Photoshop harm you?

Yes, man! And it can make you lose lot of time when there are superscript and subscript, letter-spacing, line-spacing, etc.

I usally spend one hour at day using Photoshop. Sometimes to fix bad photos, sometimes to create posters, but I also fought against text and it often won.

Now I want to show you some simple tips, tricks and keyboard shortcuts to simplify your works with text on Photoshop.

First of all select the Default Workspace of Photoshop (I use the CS3 Version)

Default Workspace

Now you are sure to have the text Character & Paragraph tab on the right.

Quickly Preview Your Text With Different Fonts


Select the Type layer in the Layers palette, click on the font selection option in the Options Bar at the top of the screen, then use your Up or Down arrow keys to change font.
Letter Spacing

Letter Spacing could reminds you of the CSS property and here works in the same way: it sets the space bewteen letters.
If you want to change it in an entire text level open the Characther, select the letter-spacing area and set it.


You can also do this for a limited number of letters, just select the desired letters.
Keyboard Shortcut

Select the desired text and then “Ctrl+Alt” (Windows) or “Command+Option” (Mac) and use the Up and Down arrow keys to adjust linespacing by 10 points of default.
Line Spacing

This property is called “line-height” on CSS and it sets the space bewteen lines.
If you want to change it in an entire text level open the Characther, select the line-spacing area and set it.


You can also do this for a limited number of line, just select the desired line.
Keyboard Shortcut

Select the desired text and then “Alt” (Windows) or “Option” (Mac) and use the Up and Down arrow keys to adjust linespacing by 2 points of default.
Superscript Text

Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift++” (Windows) / “Command+Shift++” (Mac)
Subscript Text

Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift+Alt++” (Windows) / “Command+Shift+Option++” (Mac)
Convert Text To All Caps

Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift+K” (Windows) / “Command+Shift+K” (Mac)
Convert Text To Small Caps

Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift+H” (Windows) / “Command+Shift+H” (Mac)
Apply A Fake Bold Aspect


I often have to go up against some font designers ’cause they don’t include the bold style to their font.
With Photoshop you can fix this problem (in part))
Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift+B” (Windows) / “Command+Shift+B” (Mac) to make text bold.
Apply A Fake Italic Aspect


The same goes for the italic style.
Keyboard Shortcut

Highlight the text and hold “Ctrl+Shift+I” (Windows) / “Command+Shift+I” (Mac) for italics.

Are our leadear create the right platform for our youths ?

Assalamualaikum wrt.wbt...

Hello guys ..... this morning i was thinking to write my expression on school leaver youths.... its is regarding to an issue .. n for me this issue is very-very critical to discuss so that we together can find the best solution to help them especially malays . The issue i wan to bring up here was to many muslims youths that i meet still cannot read the even Doa Qunut, Doa Inftitah .. and many more that required in solat ... so when we look at this situation, we have so many questions here. ... Are these student never learn how to pray during the primary and secondary schools ? .. are their parent never teach them how to pray or maybe their parent also never force them to pray ? ... May be the ustaz or ustazah had teach them .. but why they still cannot pray correctly ? ..do they teach the student just to fulfill the syllabus requirement regardless student understand or not especially in how to practice what they have learned. mm so i don't wanna to explain in detail anymore about this .. i let u guys out there to think it .. n come out with your own reason and solutions. .... gud luck guy's

Im Coming

hmmm .. i think that almost 2 month i did not post any comment or article here .. Sometimes a lot of negative thinking crossed my head which said that this blogspot was so boring .. .. with simple layout which is not interesting ... and can only support limited function ...for me .. i want more .. we can put anyting here... like upload and upload funtion so that we can share certain files easily with frens and the other readers .... easy to put, arrange pic .. and maybe to arrange our layout content easily ...

A few days ago.. i had made a lot of reading and searching in the internet .. n i saw a lot of third party function , more interesting layout design that we can add into the blogspot. So i took a few of the funcion that i had recovered in the internet to redesign my blogsport so that its looking more interesting to me and to the others generally ........With these new function .. im trying to write more information, articles and maybe some notes which is relate to the subject that i teach in ITI and make my blog as a place for my students to get latest information.....

I believed that with this new improvement ,, i can use this blog to help my student in achieving good result in the education ...beside helping me to note down my ideas for the other readears...

Buying The New House

Early this morning i went to Batu Berendam Melaka accompany by 2 of my senior friends . In mind i just want to survey the New housing project. Actually, i am planning to buy a new house 2 years ago. Unfortunately i do not meet the housing project that can fulfill my requirement in terms of location and the design itself... i like to buy a Terace House or Semi D Type because in case i have to transfer to another place i can rent that house easily to other rental. So when we arrived there i spent almost 30 minute to take a look at all the sample house. It's very interesting and modern design .. The price offered by the developer also cheap .. and one more thing about the houses .. i really like the location .. near to the school .. bank . and oil station ...near to Batu Berendam Airport.
Because of that reason so i was booked one Semi D type cost RM 160.000.00 ... I hope my new house can be finished quicker than as scheduled.
