PSD Updating Your Text

Here is a sim­ple tuto­r­i­al on how to update text in a Dig­iluxe PSD (Pho­to­shop) tem­plate.

BEFORE you open a paid template, you will need to download & install the fonts listed on the instruction sheet that came with your template. (Unfortunately, I can not provide direction for installing fonts as the steps vary depending on your specific model of computer) 

Once you have installed the required fonts and downloaded your template from your Etsy Purchases Tab — begin with step one.


  1. Open Pho­to­shop!
  2. Click FILE > OPEN and nav­i­gate to the tem­plate you saved and then CLICK > OPEN.


When one of my tem­plates has quite a few text lay­ers, I will group all of the lay­ers into a fold­er for eas­i­er nav­i­ga­tion. If your tem­plate has a fold­er that says TEXT or EDITABLE TYPE, just hit the tiny arrow next to the fold­er and the type lay­ers will drop down so that you can edit them indi­vid­u­al­ly.


To edit an indi­vid­ual type lay­er DOUBLE CLICK on the “T” icon for that lay­er and the type for that lay­er will become high­light­ed.


With the text high­light­ed, just START TYPING and your text will replace the cur­rent text. Once you have COMPLETED typ­ing in your text, sim­ply select anoth­er lay­er in your lay­er win­dow and the text lay­er you were work­ing on will become des­e­lect­ed.

(NOTE: If you want to edit a par­tial line of type, DOUBLE CLICK on the “T” icon, then move your mouse curs­er just behind the spe­cif­ic word(s) you want to edit. DRAG the curs­er back­wards over the spe­cif­ic words that you want to edit (to high­light them) and start typ­ing.


Repeat the steps above for all of the type lay­ers that are editable text with your pur­chased tem­plate.
