Trying my hand at Photoshop with some text effects, coming unstuck with what Im guessing is a very simple problem.
Link below is the tutorial I'm attempting;
Part 1 posted here;
Create a new image 500x500 px with a dark gray background. Using the type tool create your text in white make it as big as possible, I used times new roman font. Click OK. Go to Layer>Type>Render Layer. When done hold CTRL and click on the text to select it. Now go to the channels palette and create a new channel.
I create the image, set the background, add my text. But when I go to the menu to render the layer, the type option is not available - still greyed out, why?
I have tried after unselecting the text as well as it selected it and since this is an procedure tha has to be followed a by a vast number of the text tutorials I've seen, Im guessing I'm missing somethign very simple, but I can't see it, anyone able to help me out?
