Hi, I am Samyak Veera from U.S.

I have a picture that I'm editing and i wanted to include some text on it. I used the Horizontal Type Tool to enter the text but now i want to rotate it a little so that it is on an angle but i can't seem to find the option to do that. How do i go about doing that in Photoshop? Suggest me the solution.

Thanks

Hi Samyak Veera,

After typing your text click the check-mark to commit and then select the move tool from the top of the tools pallet. You should see a bounding box appear around your words with four corner handles. Hover your mouse around one of the corners until the cursor changes to double rotation arrows. You can then change the angle to your liking and re-commit. You can also click in the middle of the box to drag it around if you need to re-position.

For those who don't see the bounding box click Show Transform Controls.

With your text layer selected press Command/Control + T and a free transform bounding box will appear around your text. Move your cursor anywhere outside of the box then click & drag to rotate. Press Enter or Return to apply the rotation.

Note: If you move your cursor inside the bounding box you can reposition the text. If you click & drag any of the nodes on the box you can scale your text. This is an extremely handy keyboard shortcut to learn.
