No Bold Or Italic? Fake It Easy With Photoshop

Transcript:

Consider this situation. Suppose you want to make your font bold or italic, but here’s the problem. The phone that you might be using doesn’t have bold or italic. What to do then well. Photoshop has a feature that allows you to mimic the characteristics of bold and italic, and today we’re going to be talking about just that so without any further ado, let’s get started [Music] so here we’re in Photoshop. Let’s go ahead and add some text to it. So select the text tool. You already know that, and I’m gonna choose the font babie’s new way. I don’t know how to pronounce it. I’m sorry about that, and let’s choose bold. It does have bold. All right now. Lets type in say. Need for Speed or I’ll do it in separate layers, But here’s the problem. It’s typing strain. I wanted italic. There is bold, but there is no italic or for example. You want to use the bold and you want to make it italic or you want to use the italic and you want to make it bold. What to do then? Well, first of all, let’s go ahead and change the color double, click on the T to select it all, and then we can choose the color by going to the toolbar at the top and we can choose white, just like that to make it stand out. Okay, now doesn’t matter whether the text is selected or not. Just make sure the text layer is selected, okay, and then make sure the text tool is selected at the top. There is this button. Click on that the character and paragraph dialog box shows up in the corner. There’s a grid, there’s this grid ish thing, and there you will find for bold faux italic. I used to say Fox, but my good friend. George in corrected me. Thank You, Georgie. All right, so let’s choose faux italic and just to make things clear again. Here’s the pronunciation faux faux. Now as you can see it’s italic now much better. Now, let’s make it a little bigger press ctrl or command D first of all, choose to move to ctrl or command. T make it bigger something like that. And then I would simply make a copy of this layer. Hold the Alt key or the option, key, click and drag and release it, release the Alt Key or the option key. Now let’s just double Click on the T to select all of it and lets Type 4 and I’m gonna make the for a little smaller ctrl or command T and make it a little smaller, just like so and place it in line with that one. Make sure both are in the same line design principle. Let’s bring in a ruler. Yep, make sure both are in the same line. Yes, both are in the same line looks amazing. If you cannot see the ruler press ctrl or command R to hide it R to show it. So that’s the ruler up there next. I’m gonna copy the need, but it’s copying the four. Let’s go to the need layer, Hold the Alt key or the option key. Copy the need and paste it here, and I’m gonna change that to speed, not DPR. What am I doing, all right there? You go looks interesting, so we can keep it something like that. Looks very interesting and let’s make a group out of it and change the color of speed to red double. Click on the T single. Click here and let’s choose something like this hit. OK, and let’s make a group of all of them select. All of them, let’s make a group and now adjusted the way you like it, and you’re good to go. Let’s fit it to screen and just it the way you like it. According to the car. And there, you have it if you want to add some special effects to it. I wanna hide the guide How to hide the guide. Press ctrl semicolon. Alright, now, suppose you want to add some effects to it? First of all, lets. Just rotate it a bit more like that, OK? Let’s add some effects. It’s not looking interesting, simple How to add effects convert this into a smart object. First right, click, convert to smart object. Now make a copy of this ctrl or command. J and you don’t have to watch any of this. The tutorial is over for bold faux italic. If you want to change it to bold for bold and italic for italic. Alright, back to the image. If you’re interested, go to filter blur, motion blur and the reason why we converted it into a smart object so that we can change the values of motion blur later and we can change even the text later, right, so let’s apply some motion blur and lets. Choose the right angle. You can just play with the values to see which angles work for you, so it looks pretty good to me. I can just flavor the angles even more to see which angles work better. But I think for me. I’m gonna go with lets. Say five, let’s see how five does five fits in pretty awesome hit? Okay, looks amazing, but then we need to move it to the right a little bit. So we’ll choose to move to the move. Tool is already selected and we can move this to the right a little bit, adjust the position, and there we go amazing effect. Amazing need for speed now. You can make a group of both of these. So this is the motion blur one, and this is the normal one. Make a group of both of these and you can rotate it. If you want to just like, so, it’s pretty good now. Also what you can do in the motion blur one, you can also decrease the opacity of this just like so similarly, in this case, we converted it into Italic. If you want to make any font bold, which it doesn’t have bold, you can select the text tool, okay. Make sure that text layer is selected. Whatever the text layer You’re in and you would select full bold if you want to turn it to bold if the font doesn’t have pulled if it doesn’t have Italic faux italic, do not forget to check it off later because otherwise it will add that to every font whenever you type, so that’s all for this tutorial, or is it wait a second? If you want to change the font and still keep the effect. You can do that fine because this is a smart object. So all you have to do double. Click on the thumbnail. It opens up another document with the text now. For example, you want to change the need double-click on it and change it to feed for speed. And if you want to adjust it a little bit. Okay, and save it. Ctrl or command. S or file save, not save as file save. Come back to this one. See, even the motion blur is being changed with that because both are linked to the same document as a smart object. So finally, that is pretty much it and bye.
