Photoshop Horizontal Type Tool

Updated on November 27, 2015

Photoshop Horizontal Type Tool

Whenever you want to add text to a Photoshop document, whether it's a single letter or several lengthy paragraphs, you use Photoshop's Type Tool, which is found along with all of Photoshop's other tools in the Tools palette. It's the icon roughly halfway down the right column of the Tools palette, which has a capital letter T as its icon.

A quick and easy way to access the Type Tool, rather than selecting it directly from the Tools palette, is to simply press the letter "T" on your keyboard (as in "T" for "Type Tool").

If you look closely at the screenshot of the Tools palette above, you'll see in the "tool tip" which appears whenever you hold your mouse over something in Photoshop (unless you've disabled tool tips in the Preferences) that the Type Tool actually has a longer official name, the "Horizontal Type Tool". That's because when you use it to enter text into your Photoshop document, the text will appear horizontally, rather than vertically, as you'd normally expect. Of course, that might bring up the question, "Does that mean there's a 'Vertical Type Tool' as well? And the answer would be yes.
