My text just seems so "plopped on." Even with gradients, dropshadows etc. Like the cover I did Betrayed Heroes. It's got a gradient and it just looks so plopped on. 

 

Other covers like Saving Baby (I did not do the cover), The Last Monument, Billy the Kid, they all have such great text that looks so professionally done. How can I make text like that?

 

Thanks.

There are lots of text/font-type buttons in the graphics panel – see image below. After typing your text simply click on a button to see the effect.

You can also choose from the many options in the Styles panel.

Thanks 99jon and I'm very sorry for the late reply. (I thought no one had answered.) Your reply is very helpful.

Hi thanks for replying. Glad to help. I also have a video demo on using photos to create text which may be of interest.

Quickly use photos of people or places to create beautiful text using Photoshop Elements guided editing.
