You can also rotate between the different Type tools by typing SHIFT-T multiple times until the tool you wish to use is displayed in the Type tool spot in the toolbox.
Then, click inside the boundaries of your canvas wherever you want to create text, and begin typing. You can customize the font details, including how the text is aligned on the canvas, either in the Options bar or the Character palette (choose Window | Character).
When you are satisfied with your text, click the check mark at the right end of the Options bar to commit the text to its layer. Alternatively, you can click any other tool in the toolbox or on a layer in the Layers palette to commit the text to its layer. To cancel the text layer, click the X button at the right end of the Options bar or press CTRL-. (Windows) or CMD-. (Mac).
