Type Basics

In this section, we will examine different ways to "set type" in PhotoShop. This exercise will examine these following topics: size, kerning, tracking, baseline, leading, color, anti-aliasing, and setting faux bolding and italics.

A note on page 128 highlights what anti-aliasing is, using either smooth font bases or jagged. Most of the time, we want to keep it anti-aliased.

Complete this exercise as well as lesson 2 "jump to" lesson 3 "changing the update feature" and then move on to the next lesson 4 on editing type.
