Before we get started in this course, I just want to point out some reasons why you would want to consider working with Type inside of Photoshop. Believe it or not, there's quite a bit of capability when it comes to Typography inside of Photoshop. And because of that, it's incredibly easy and convenient to set your Type inside the program. It produces live vector type so quality really isn't an issue and you have sophisticated Type features like kerning, tracking, letting. You also have options for justification and hyphenation. However, there are some drawbacks. Photoshop really isn't designed to work with large amounts of text. For example, if you're creating a book or a pamphlet that's a few pages, Photoshop really isn't going to be the best tool for you. But if you have a headline or a small piece of Type that you want set within an overall design, a lot of times it doesn't make sense to leave Photoshop just for those reasons because Photoshop does have tremendous support for Type as you'll find out over the next couple movies and chapters in this course.
