Word art and Subway art are all the rage right now! You can find cute sayings to print and frame all over the web. Some are free, some charge a nominal fee - all are sweet! I'm going to give you some tips on how to create your own word art in Photoshop using guides, grids, and rulers! It's easy peasy and I know you'll have fun designing your own!
1.Open up photoshop and click on "File>New". When the little screen pops up, you can name your printable, then choose what size you want it to be. I chose it to be 6 inches wide and 4 inches high so it would fit in a regular 4X6 frame. Make sure the resolution is set to 300 pixels/inch! Click OK.
2. In order to get that evenly spaced wort art, you'll need to view the rulers on the top and bottom, and the grids. This will make your life SO much easier and will turn out a flawless print. To view the rulers, click on View>Rulers
9. One last tip. The grid lines make it easy to create a little outline around the text, to give it that polished look. Click once on the background (or color layer) to select it in the layers palette. Select the rectangular marquee tool (the one that looks like a box with marching ants around it). Drag out a perfectly spaced rectangle using the grid lines as guides. Then, click on Edit>Stroke and add a white 2px stroke. Click on "Select>deselect" for the marching ants to disappear. Done!
