PSD Updating the Color of Your Text

Here is a sim­ple tuto­r­i­al on how to update the col­or of your text lay­ers 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.


Chang­ing the col­or of a line of text is easy. Sim­ply DOUBLE CLICK on the “T” icon to select that type lay­er. Once the type is high­light­ed, a vari­ety of options will appear as usable on the upper tool bar. While the line of text is select­ed, sim­ply SINGLE CLICK on the col­ored box via the upper tool bar and the COLOR PICKER will appear.

You can use your mouse to click any­where in the large box of col­or to select a col­or there OR click with­in the rain­bow bar next to the big col­or box and more col­or options will appear. To enter a spe­cif­ic col­or num­ber, use the RGB box­es or the # box at the bot­tom. CLICK OK and the new col­or will be applied.


Repeat the steps above for all of the type lay­ers that you would like to make a col­or change on with­in your pur­chased tem­plate.
