    how to insert text with a background color?

    Michael314 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I need to insert text over some mottled regions so I want to insert black text with a white background. I can't find a way to give the text a background color. I can do this with Powerpoint and Visio, so why not with Photoshop? My Photoshop manual makes no mention of this.

       

      So far I was able to copy a white region in the background layer and drag it to the place where I need it on the text layer, but that seems klutzy to me.

       

      I'm using Photoshop CS (8.0).

       

      Yours,
