Select the Text Tool (T) from the toolbar, and click once in your document. A flashing text cursor will appear, and a new layer will be created in the Layers palette, as shown at right. You can begin typing right away!

Adding a line of text

When you've finished typing, click on the large tick in the options bar, as shown in the example below, or select a different tool to apply the text. By default, the text layer will be named with the text that you've typed, but you can change this by double-clicking on the layer name.

If you've made a mistake, or decided that you don't need the text after all, you can undo your typing and exit the Text Tool by pressing the Esc key.
