In this tutorial I am going to finish the book cover design by adding the final type elements.





T - Type tool

V - Move tool


cmd (Ctrl PC) + A - Select all

cmd (Ctrl PC) + C - Copy

cmd (Ctrl PC) + V - Paste

cmd (Ctrl PC) + ; - Show guides

cmd (Ctrl PC) + T - Free transform

cmd (Ctrl PC) + G - Group layers


Press & hold cmd + D + press enter - Deselect type (with type tool active)


Press & hold alt + shift + click & drag - Scale object (with free transform tool active)


Press & hold cmd (Ctrl PC) + click - Select multiple individual layers




In this video tutorial, I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
