I want to postion the text from a corner at an angle on top of an image but I am not sure how! I tried using the transform tool, but I can't select it when I have the text layer selected. I also tried merging the background layer and the text, but I can't select both layers!
It's a long time since I used PS 6 but, in current versions, once the text is commited, the Ctrl+T transform box appears.
You can then move and rotate the text box as you wish.
I'm with John - it's been a long time since I last used PS 6, but doesn't it have the Text on a Path Tool? The T will have a slightly curved line at the bottom in the icon. If so, use the Pen Tool to draw your Path, and then click the Text on a Path Tool on, or very near that Path, and Type.
I'll be interested to know if that Tool was in PS 6.
