To use a font's built-in kerning information:

In the Character palette, choose Metrics (Photoshop) or Auto (ImageReady) from the Kerning menu 0 .

Note: The Metrics option replaces the Auto Kern option in previous versions of Photoshop. To adjust kerning manually:

1 Click with a type tool to set an insertion point between two characters.

Note: If a range of type is selected, you can't manually kern the characters. Instead, use tracking.

2 In the Character palette, enter or select a numeric value for Kerning 0 .

3 Commit the changes to the type layer. (See "About using the type tools (Photoshop)" on page 343.)
