Create italic Text in Photoshop 5
Although Adobe brought many improvements to Photoshop 5, one of the main complaints is that you can no longer create bold or italic text from the Text dialog box without having the bold or italic version of a font installed. This tutorial remedies this with a simple way to create an italic font without needing to have the italic version of a font installed.
1. In Photoshop, select File/New. Create your text using the Type tool. Right Mouse click (Windows) or Control+ Mouse Click (Mac) and select Render Text.
3. Select Image/Mode/Indexed and save this as a gif file if you'll be using this for the web.
What is the typeface used for the title graphic? It's called Decotura, and it's available from ImageClub.
