1 Choose a font family from the Font Family pop-up menu in the Character palette or options bar. If more than one copy of a font is installed on your computer, an abbreviation follows the font name: (T1) for Type 1 fonts, (TT) for TrueType fonts, or (OT) for OpenType fonts.
In Photoshop, you can choose a font family and style by typing the desired name in the text box. As you type, the name of the first font or style beginning with that letter appears. Continue typing until the correct font or style name appears. Be sure to deselect the font name before entering new type in the image.
2 Do one of the following:
• Choose a font style from the Font Style pop-up menu in the Character palette or options bar.
• If the font family you chose does not include a bold or italic style, click the Faux Bold button i or the Faux Italic button : in the Character palette to apply a simulated style. Alternately, choose Faux Bold or Faux Italic from the Character palette menu.
Note: You cannot apply Faux Bold formatting to warped type. (See "Warping type layers" on page 348.)
