Type Tool and Line Spacing in Photoshop Elements

Note: Long awaited post on focus is written and just needing pictures as examples. Hope to make it live tomorrow.

Have you ever started to type text and hit enter/return to keep typing on the line below it only to have it be way far down from your current line or almost on the same line as your previous text? Well, that is a common problem and a super easy fix. Watch the video tutorial below to see how to quickly remedy this issue.

  1. Thanks for the tips. I guess I’ve always been on auto because I never had that issue. But it’s helpful to know that I can increase or decrease my spacing so easily now! Plus, I hate the scrolling issues when going through the fonts on a PC. I’ll have to use my keyboard arrows now to see if that is less frustrating!

  2. Thanks for the tip! This does add versatility to the text tool!
    (Your videos look great with the Mac Dock at the bottom!)

    Keep up the great work!

  3. Haha I loved when you typed “That ROCK!” and laughed.

    Thanks Amanda. I knew about the line spacing adjustment but didn’t realize that the one key shortcut keys would toggle through the tool options if you kept pressing them. That was a great tip!

    I also find font selection on a PC difficult. Sometimes using my arrow key seems to skip over some fonts. I’m still using PSE7 so don’t know if it is any better in 9.
