How to add "Lorem Ipsum" dummy text in PS CS2?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm working on a design for a webshop where I need to a paragraph of dummy text (lorem ipsum), does anyone know how to quickly insert in my design in Photoshop (CS2)?

 

I tried copy/ paste in the textfield but the text goes horizontal. I need a paragraph...

 

Like here: http://jaxvineyards.com/

 

Thanks, cheers

Sounds like perhaps you're not defining a text area - which is done by picking the text tool then actually drawing a rectangle with it like you would with the marquee. Then you have a defined text area which your text will fill rather than just a horizontal line. The text area can be transformed after adding text if you're not happy with it's size or proportions.

"Most people who have used Photoshop for years use the Text tool by simply clicking on their image. That works, but if you’re going to type more than one line’s worth of text, the click-and type procedure is a pain because you have to manually break lines by hitting Return. Instead, drag out a text frame with the Text tool before can always reshape the frame by dragging its corner or edge handles, or rotate the text block by dragging outside of the frame..."

etc
