I am trying to space text but cannot seem to find the Character Panel all of the videos I have watched have it and seem to be older versions. I have photoshop elements 2018. Can someone help with this?

Were you perhaps watching videos for Photoshop CC 2018 rather than Elements 2018 which is a completely different product?

 

There is no Character Panel in Elements 2018.

I had seen that link post but it did not do what i wanted it to do which is put extra space in between the text without having to do it manually and stretching the font to a point where it was not in contact anymore rather blurred.

"Also there are hardly any videos for photoshop elements 2018" -- that may be true, but watching a video for the wrong product will do you no good at all. They are far too different.

Tracking and leading can be performed via the tool bin controls for the Text tool.

Sorry, I just checked and I think the tracking and leading features were added in Elements 2019.

Yes, you're right Greg_S. Leading and tracking were new in 2019.

To get later features natively in Elements, you'll have to pay to upgrade to Elements 2021 (current version).

 

Or try the Elements+ add-in suggested below.

Have a look at that powerful though very affordable add-on:

See Character scaling and Tracking.
