I am only slightly familiar at the moment with PS but just upgraded to the all apps plan. I have been googling and trying to watch youtube tutorials but what they're showing is not working for me.
Why can I not simply select the text, then use the type tool to edit templates? Also, do I need the font & gradients within the template to have them remain the same but say what I type out? This given that I make it that far. I am trying to get a simple starting flyer done before tomorrow for a friend that just got me a side hussle job as an opening DJ which use to my profession.
Thanks for any/all help in advance.
Sincerely, a Newb
Text is usually outlined in vector clip art. So you can only delete it and enter your own.
Please check out my youtube playlist about editing vector clipart: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVqhHu3CSohVhofyDlCIh3Z-Qk8qSmMqZ
Thank you very much for your help, I have checked & there is no lock or clipping mask. Although the text are in groups.
So there is no way to change the text but keep the font/gradient? Sorry, I am just failing to see the purpose of a template if it is not editable?
If that is the case, I would have to make the flyer from the ground up, but I am crunched for time at the moment which is why I decided to use the template originally. That & I am as of now lacking the knowledge to make a nicer more professional one, again in the timeframe that I am alloted.
Again, I very much appreciate your assistance! The tutorial is excellent, it is just not answering the questions I have for this specific project.
I do not mind deleting & redoing all the other texts if I must, but it is allowing me to select & move the current text but when I go to use the type tool it just opens up a new text to the right. Is there something I have to do with that to replace the existing text?
All you need to do is find the font that has been used.
Delete the uneditable text.
Then put your own text into it.
To apply a gradient to text, you have to select it with the selection tool, apply a fill in the appearance panel and then apply a gradient to that.
You can do that.
Yes I can, thank you. One last question, how would I go about finding the font?
To find the font, before deleting the gradient shapes, move them to the side on a blank space on the workspce. Then apply black color to them. Move them apart and then take two screenshots that each have a word in them.
Then you go to
https://fonts.adobe.com/ (there is a button to identify fonts be an image)
and if it cannot find a similar one, try
Maybe someone on this forum knows those fonts and can help as well.
