The next thing I have to do is add the descriptor text. So in order to do that I am going to add another guide. So we will drag a guide from the left-hand side and we will give about 10 pixel padding between the image and the text. There we go and now I am going to Alt+Tab over or Command+Tab on the Mac over to our Notepad and here is the text that we were working with earlier. So I am just going to select the appropriate text here and copy it switch back to Photoshop. Press T for the Text Tool and let's just make sure that we have the right formatting selected for our font.
So we want Arial, we want Regular, 11 pixels, which are just fine and for our anti-aliasing option we are going to select None. We are also going to take a look at the Character palette. We will make sure that the Line Spacing or the leading is set to Auto.
So we will go ahead and come over here and we will just a drag text box and I want the formatting to be aligned to the left. So I am just going to select left-align and press Ctrl+V to paste the text and that looks pretty good. The only thing I have to do is mark up my link. So I am going to select the title and in my Colors with using the Eyedropper Tool I am going to select the red that we had in the header. So we will select that and that looks pretty good, click OK and we are going to make that Bold. Perfect.
So we will press Ctrl+Enter to accept that and again if we press V for our Move Tool, we can actually move that up until it's aligned with our image. Okay, let's repeat those steps again. So we will switch over to our Notepad. We will select the text that we want to copy. Ctrl+C to copy, switch over to Photoshop get our Text Tool by pressing the T key, and click-and-drag. We can see that because I have the guides there it's actually automatically making a selection for me and we will just press Ctrl+V and past it in. This area here does not need to be bold and our link has to be that red color. So again we will single click on the Color button and go over here and select that red color again. Click OK, press Ctrl+Enter to accept this, press V for our Move Tool and move this up.
Okay, let's try that one more time or actually two more times. Switch over copy, switch over, press the T for my Text Tool, make a selection and press Ctrl+V. We will do the same thing we will select our body text and select Regular select our link text and this time we are actually just again that same red color, click OK and press Ctrl+Enter. We will go back to our Notepad and we are going to select the last text item, press Ctrl+C, switch over to Photoshop, press T for the Text Tool and just click and drag that out and Ctrl+V to paste it.
Again, let's select the body text, select Regular, select our link and change the color to that red color in the header. We will click OK, Ctrl+Enter. So we copied the text copied the text from Notepad and we pasted it next to the appropriate picture in Photoshop and then we formatted the title to the red color from the header and we applied a Bold style and then aligned the text block to the image and now it's done.
