To center the text (perfectly!!!!), you need to do this:
1) Activate the text layer by clicking on it in the Layers Panel (this is normally on the right side with your other layers)
2) Select >> All (from Menu Bar) or CTRL+A
3) Click once on the Move tool (this is necessary although you are not moving anything manually)
4) Click on the icons shown below:
Hope this helps.
Another simple way is to drag and drop guides from the top ruler and left ruler – click image below. When you commit the text the center handles will usually snap to position either using the move tool or nudging into the exact position with the arrow keys.
You can turn rulers and guides on and off under the View menu.
Another centering trick:
1. Select the text: Ctrl-click the text layer in the Layers Palette.
2. Copy selection to the clipboard (Edit > Copy).
3. Delete the selection.
4. Paste from the clipboard (Edit > Paste). This places the text on a new layer, perfectly centered.
5. Delete the original text layer.
Note that this method also works for other kinds of layers besides text, e.g., shapes, images.
Yes, this is also driving me crazy the hell. Why photoshop can't auto center text!
I find one tutorial gives detail tips on how to center text in Photoshop, I post here, hope it helps.
In case you just want to see how to set it in picture, I post the pic of PS centre text below.
NO offense, but this measure only centers the text as t up and down orientation. It does nothing to center the text left to right. Do you have any clue how to center the text left to right? Thanks
what does that mean i.e."drag and drop guides"?
I finally figured it out. You are supposed to hit the "middle" button to center text. It is confusing because the "center" button is typically used in all other software.
Thank you! This was driving me mad.
