It doesn't mean it's your issue but: A lot of time, when magical things happen when they shouldn't, it's because you're using a keyboard shortcuts you are not aware of. It's possible you are pressing the "/" while being on your layer and it will lock it or its transparency. You can lock/unlock layers with this keyboard shortcut.

Select the text layer Look at the top of your Layers-Panel. There are multiple locks displayed. Make sure none of them is activated You cannot deactivatd them? Make sure, that the text layer isn't inside a locked group. Groups can be locked and their effect also appliew on the layers inside of the group. Move the laye out of the group or unlock the group ...

Let's start over, since it looks like your happy accident produced a semi-transparent "Let's Ride" mask and it makes it hard to see what's going on... To keep things simple, I'm starting with just a Background Layer (with the visibility turned off for now) and a Text Layer. With your Text Layer selected, use the Magic Wand to select the space inside ...

My method requires turning the text into outlines. Write the text with the desired font. Add a stroke of a different color. I used a 4pt stroke. Note: I also made the stroke on the outside in the strokes options panel but this may not be necessary. Select the font and go to object -> Transform -> Move (Make sure to hit copy!). I did -4px, 4px. This ...

This happens because some characters like 'S' and 'O' slightly higher than 'I'. You could convert the text into outline Type > Create Outline and place it to the top left corner. By enabling Smart Guides (CTRL + U) you could easily position the text.

You should kern your text, not track it. Kerning is located in the character palette, below font size and left of tracking (CS6). Negative numbers will shift your text left, the units are 1/1000 em, so you may need to enter a large number like -100 (put your cursor on the left side of the E before you enter it of course). Tracking is for adjusting uniform ...

As the others have stated, this is a font issue, not an Illustrator one. I've noticed this happening in other Adobe programs as well, not only AI. My workaround for this is a simple one and involves placing a space in front of your first character, then you adjust the tracking of the space to a negative value, until it lines up where you'd like it. In the ...

I cannot really follow your example in the image. However, the problem may be due to anti-aliasing which exists in the type and in the rasterized image. When rasterized the anti-aliasing may become stronger and more visible. If you have to edit your type layer in rasterized form, you may consider: Set it much larger type size than needed, say 144 points ...

EDIT: While everything I said in my answer is true, the answer that you are looking for is Qutorial's answer below. It's tested and it works nicely. Keep in mind that while using his method you need to be in text-editing mode with the focus in front of the first letter, only then you can change the value from auto (or 0) to a negative one! I'm sorry ...

Hm. Not sure if this is the most efficient way of doing this, but this is how I would do this in Photoshop... -Load all your qr codes into a stack (File>Scripts>LoadFilesIntoStack) -Then duplicate these layers on top of your poster design. -Then using layer comps, create a series of comps by hiding each qr code to create a series of unique posters. -Then ...

Since you know how to create the focus effect and perspective, why not have a look at the 3D features of Photoshop. It's probably the easiest way to have that reflection you want on your letters and you can combine what you'll create in 3D with other effects and filter. Simply use that font you found, type your text, and try "New 3D extrusion from ...

This was the easiest solution. Up to step 8. Essentially you convert the text to a shape -> transform path -> pull bottom right anchor down ( or left depending which side you want warped )

I can't directly reference CS5. I no longer have it available to work in. However... You can't do this easily with Live Type. But you can create a smart object of the type (or rasterize the type) then transform. Converting type to a shape layer would also allow the transformation to work. Really, using a smart object with live type may be best because you ...

Yes. Select the first text box, click the square just above the lower right corner, and then click on the second text box.

I have used Abbyy Finereader for over a decade now, and it has always done a fantastic job for me. I really love the fact that, in addition to reading scanned images, it can also read fully digital PDF files, essentially rebuilding the PDF into an editable document. I don't have a lot of experience with other OCR software, but I can't imagine it getting much ...

What you have shown uses only three things, Smart Objects (you may not need it depending on how complex the design is) , Perspective and Distort , both found in the Transform menu (Ctrl + T). You mentioned your design isn't as clear, that depends on the resolution of the distorted layer and the level of distortion. This isn't quite something you nail the ...

They are substitution or pre-composed variant that are alternate glyphs and may not be available on all fonts; you will see them only when the font was created to incorporate them in a specific way. Example from Myriad Pro Bold from the Typekit: Top example is without using the "Fraction" substitution, bottom example is using it. You can't really enable ...

You can do a Find/Change to delete them all. Find: ^n (that’s the code for a forced line break) and leave the Change blank. Choose Document in the dropdown so it does the find/change in all the stories, rather than only the active one.

What you need is to use "Layer Masks" (Tutorials from Adobe here) You can add layer masks on your letters AND also add shadow later if you need to add more realism to your 3D effect. You need to type your texts on layers above the image/subject, and "hide" some parts of that text. If it's easier to cut out the main subject of your layout, you can also ...

Just add a type layer above the photograph layer. Add a layer mask to the type layer. Paint black on the layer mask where you want to hide the type.

On Mac, if you use Alfred, the workaround I use is to copy, ignite Alfred, paste the text, select all, cut and then paste into illustrator. This works with spotlight as well.

One way to do this with basic Photoshop skills, would be placing the text on top of the basketball player, and then erasing the parts where you wand the 'pass trough' effect. To erase the text, you have to first transform it to image.

You can use the Google Fonts web tool and type the name in the field "Preview Text". Or use the well known dafont website, you can type the name in the field "Preview" (when a category is selected).

This tutorial I found should explain things pretty well... it's not that hard. Since it's only part of the tutorial, I've linked you to the start of the shadow making. You might have to wait a few seconds. This one is for illustrator. https://youtu.be/HB7CpyENtHY?t=4m2s (From video instructions on request in case video gets deleted, is not accessible, or ...

First you should type your text paragraph. Then place your image on the text box. Then select both text paragraph and image. Go to the Object menu > Text Wrap > Make. It will do your magic :)

It's helpful to assign a shortcut to the Type-->change case-->option of your choice. That way you can put in your search string and then when it highlights it, you just hit your keyboard combo and then hit find next and keep on going.

Create any shape you want and choose "Area Type Tool" from the type panel, Next, click on the shape you have created and start typing. It is clear that you should place your images first and after that to create the shape which borders with the images and other objects: or... this one :)))

Use the justified, flush left option in the Paragraph Panel and not the force justify option.

I had the same issue before. Simply the version you installed doesn't support arabic text or you install it without activating arabic text support during installation. Just uninstall it and then run the installer and in option panel in the bottom left there is language choose English يدعم العربية . If there is no option like that, then your ...

Draw a circle in the desired size. Convert it into a path. Write the text. Mark text and circle. From the text menu, choose 'align to path'. Since I have a german Inkscape version, the exact wording might differ. Single text + band - I guess the default options. Note: The circle has to stay in the picture. If you delete the circle, the text will ...

Ajar Productions has a script called Merge Text that does mostly what you want, except it turns the text into a big point text. You may need to adjust spacing after this tough as the script toolset is a bit simplistic. Illustrator Praxis has a set of text tools that can do this with a little more work. For one they have a script to turn point texts into ...

Object > Text Frame Options . . The Inset Spacing options controls how close text is allowed to get to the edges of the text frame. This is what is indicated by the inner frame.

Well it would be better on Illustrator. Black stroke, no fill, compressed kerning: I've never tried this in Photoshop but it does seem to behave strangely. This has stroke but no Fill Opacity and the letters don't seem to allow it to work as expected: If you need to do it in Photoshop then it looks like the only option is going to be to isolate each ...

The website you showed as example uses a very thick/bold and big font. They also modified the background to be monotone and have a "flat" color to create more contrast. They seemed to have blurred some zones so the details of the background pictures don't mix up with the text. It's possible you can't do that to the images on your immehabayas.com website ...

The website you have referenced uses a fat slab font. Those always stand out well and look great in color. Lato however, is a much thinner font and I wouldn't play around with colors on your site to increase contrast. If you want the font to stand out, try increasing the font weight a little bit. Since you're a webdesigner I guess you will also be ...

The Brewsters website darkened their photos with what looks like a Sepia Tone of sorts. They also use a much heavier weight font. Yours on the other hand uses a pretty light font in comparison, and very light photos. Especially around the outer areas of your photos where most of the text is it gets lighter, you have to darken that. Just look at where you ...
