    photoshop question 4009:

    i've got my image....then i go to the type tool....
    now i want to rotate my type without rotating the whole
    'canvas'.......do i have to open up a new document
    and do my type, then rotate and paste it???
    what if i want all the letters jumbly?
    say i wanted one straight, then one sideways,
    then upside down?

  2. If you pick the layer that the fonts are on and go to EDIT>TRANSFORM>ROTATE you'll get the job done.
    If you wanna have more than one you should right click on the layer and 'DUPLICATE LAYER' as many times you want, then trasnform eachone separetely as you wish

    thats what people say....

    i've got one more type question:

    now that i rotatered that puppy,
    i want to flip it around so its looks
    like its in a mirror....rorrim..<like this
    only all the letters, like the 'r' would
    be facing the other way.................

    nevermind, i just figured it out.................
  7. Aha!!!!
    You'll have to go letter by letter,
    I'm trying to think of the simpliest way....
    So before doing any rotations, duplicate the layer and 'Flip horizontal' the one, select(use the lasso) the letter you wish to be mirror mirrored:)D ) and delete it (cut).
    Go to the other layer (the unmirrored one) and cut all the letters exept the one you want to use.
    Now place the letter on the right posistion and keep visible those two only(declick that little eye icon on the layer pallete on all the others)
    The word is now ONE layer, rotate it as said above.
    Or if all this is complicated get on AIM

    okay...that was a bit complicated for my
    beginner status, but i got it.......but instead
    of the lasso i used the magic wand....
    thanks tesseract[​IMG]
  9. Just make sure that the 'magic wand' doesnt leave any pixels around(it usualy happens)
    Thats why i always suggest when using the magic wand to SELECT>MODIFY>EXPAND>1PIXEL.
    That helped me a lot in general
