Creating a Text Box in Photoshop Elements

I am back this week with another Photoshop Elements video tutorial.  Today I am going to show you how to create a text box.  You can see the first three videos listed below just in case you missed them.

Video 1 – Opening a Photo

Video 2 – Layers

Video 3 – Font Selector

Each video is short and to the point because I know you are busy and don’t want to spend hours learning a simple tool.


Creating a Text Box in Photoshop Elements - - This short video tutorial gives you step by step instructions for creating a text box!

Photoshop Elements Video 4 – Creating a Text Box

Text boxes are created for blocks of text such as journaling on scrapbook pages.  This page from my August 2015 kit post shows a great example of text boxes.

The white box in the middle has a title plus a text box.  So this shows you how great they look on the page and it is much easier to create a text box than it is to write each line of text individually.

If you would like to view the video in full screen mode please click on the You Tube logo in the lower right corner.  This will take you to You Tube and you can make it full screen.  While you are there be sure to subscribe to my channel.

I have to alert you to the quietness of this video.  I used a different computer because my laptop is so noisy and I could hear that in the background of my other videos.  The new computer doesn’t have a built in microphone so I used a different mic.  I must not have spoken loud enough.  Be sure to adjust your volume after the ad plays.


I hope you liked the video and that you will come back next week for a short tutorial about using the shape tool.

Remember that you can get Photoshop Elements 13 if you don’t already have a version.  When I created that link (Monday evening Sept 7th) the price was $59.99 which is a $40 savings.  That is one of the best prices I have seen.

Amazon changes the prices a lot so I try to watch for a good price and let you know via Facebook when I see one.  So please like my Facebook page if you haven’t done so already.

Thanks for stopping by!
