"Need Advice On Aligning Text in Photoshop CC"


Aventura, US
          

I am making a poster that has 12 images arranged in 3 columns and 4 rows. I would like to put a caption under each image. How do I align the text so that in each column, the text is horizontally centered in that column, under its associated image. Hope I am being clear.

Let's see if I can explain, Steve. This method will align captions and photos!

  1. select your photos and captions
    (PC: Alt-click
    Mac: command-click on each layer -- photo and text -- in the Layers panel)
  2. on the PS toolbar, select 'align horizontal centers'
  3. deselect the first column's layers
  4. select the captions and images of the second layer; repeat step 1-3
  5. repeat for the last column

Larry gave you a great tip. I would like to add that when selecting a series of layers that are in sequence in the layers palette you can also Shift-Click (Windows - not sure if that is the same for Mac) the first and last layer and it will select all the layers in the series. Just makes it a little faster than Alt-Clicking each layer, one at a time.

Good added tip, Ernesto. I intentionally left it out, in case Steve's layers weren't contiguous.
