Step 12: Creating Text

Click all eye icons in front the layers. We’ll hide every background and model to focus more on the text.

Create text using tool type. As you can see, every word is in separate layer. Their size is also vary. I make the word FIGHT larger to emphasize it and do the opposite for AFRAID. Once you’re done creating your text, select all those text layers and hit ctrl+G to put it in a group. One more thing, no need to worry about its color, use any color you want.

Step 13

Next, we need to create lots of text. Click and drag to create a text box. You can just use random text like lorem ipsum but I prefer to use real text so our viewer can really read it. Because this picture reminds me of war, I go to wikipedia and open article on world war and copy some text written there. Then I paste it a few times in Photoshop. I also use alignment justify to make sure the text fit perfectly inside text box. Use very small size font like 5 or 6.
