I try to do it mostly with words but sometimes have to do it with other things too. How do you equally space out things automatically, I Know how to evenly distribute from the center of every layer/object but not how to have even actual space between those to objects.

This is really not a problem when all the things are of the same width (or height) but as you know words are hardly ever that. So what i do is is make a rectangle of size that i want space to be empty and once done typing i manually drag out that box to the end of the first word, then adjust the 2nd one decrease/increase the space to match the edges of the rectangle and so on for the texts after 2nd..like 3rd,4th...Usually it's Home, About, Products, Contact, etc...

This is why Fireworks is superior for web design and interface design. It was built for that purpose. Photoslop was built for photo editing. –  yawn Apr 30 at 20:53

You can't.

Photoshop offers no "distribute spacing" options out of the box.

The only way I know to do this in Photoshop is via scripting. You can check out the distribute scripts from Trevor Morris here.

There are no other answers unless you want to manually measure space between object and move things yourself or use a different application. –  Scott Jan 13 '13 at 23:47

Um... I'm a bit confused cause

how to have even actual space between those words

So what i do is is make a rectangle of size that i want space to be empty and once done typing i manually drag out that box to the end of the first word, then adjust the 2nd one decrease/increase the space to match the edges of the rectangle and so on for the texts after 2nd..like 3rd,4th...Usually it's Home, About, Products, Contact, etc...

  • Text tool
  • Click and drag so it creates a text box
  • Change paragraph style to Justify All
  • Type in Home About Products Contact

Think I must be missing something cause while I don't know Muhammad or Yawn, I do know Scott would know this.

This is little inconvinient. As it would lock the all in one. I would like home text to be sepearte so this way i can't style home separately with ease. Also this only works for text what about something else with different widths... how would i distribute space evenly and not evenly from their center. –  Muhammad Umer Apr 30 at 23:35
    
Take a look at question.. –  Muhammad Umer Apr 30 at 23:47

Ya I figured that was it but your question does, and still says, "distribute words in evenly spaced formation." If you're asking about all objects then no, this would not be a solution. –  Ryan Apr 30 at 23:52
