  1. In the Tools Panel select the T tool
  2. Right-Click on the T tool to show the hidden tools
  3. From the drop-down menu select Horizontal Type Tool
  4. In the Layers Panel, Re-name the layer to TEXT

Note: Determine what it is you want to write.  You will need to be 100% sure about this because you will not be able to change it after this step.  Check your diction and spelling before moving on.

 

5. In the Layers Panel, select the TEXT layer 

6. Right-Click on the Text Layer

 

7. From the drop-down menu select Convert to Shape​. The text tool in Photoshop is relatively limited.  So in order to transform your type freely, convert it into a shape.

You can see now that the text has turned into a shape, you are able to edit the letters individually.
