How to Spell Check in Photoshop

Editors and proficient users of the software may not have the luxury of time, especially if you are in a rush to meet the client’s deadlines. You can at least be double sure of the content you are adding to your image.

  • Step 1: Open Adobe Photoshop

    You will first need to open the Adobe Photoshop software on your computer, either access it through your Applications folder if you are an Apple User, or search and click on the desktop icon as a Windows user. Proceed to open the file you would want to check the spelling of your text.

  • Step 2: Open “Check Spelling”


    Pick the text to be checked or, in the Layers panel, select a type layer to check all the text on that layer. Select “Edit,” then ‘Check Spelling.” Such as the example presented in the image, a sample text has been added. Since it is the correct spelling, the spell check will notify it to be complete.


  • Step 3: Perform Spell Check


    After you have performed the spell check, a new window will inform you that the spell check is complete which signifies that no error was spotted. But when Photoshop recognizes a probable problem in the “Not in Dictionary” box, click “Change” to replace the wrongly spelled word with the recommended repair.

How do you edit already written text in Photoshop?
