Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have Photoshop opened
    .

  2. 2
    We should have either a new document or an existing one opened as well
    .
    There are other VisiHow videos on how to do that.

  3. 3
    In this video, we've already typed something into the document
    .
    This becomes a new layer, which we can move around. This layer is indicated at the right-hand side with the big capital "T". To learn how to add text to a document, refer to another VisiHow video.

  4. 4
    To rasterize the layer, we should right-click the layer
    .
    "Rasterizing" means that we make a layer not a text layer but a common layer that is easier to edit like a picture and add different filters to, which we are limited in when we haven't rasterized our text.

  5. 5
    We click "Rasterize Type"
    .
    The layer will appear almost like a picture layer. We can do other things now.

  6. 6
    We can click the text tool now
    .
    We click the image and type something. This will add a new layer. It will not allow us to edit the previous text. We should take care of an interesting fact that if we rasterize our font, we cannot go back unless we press the Undo key combination. If we save the document and reopen it, we cannot go back.

  7. 7
    We should ensure that before we rasterize our text font and style, where we have "Bold", "Italic", and so on, has already been added exactly how we like
    .
    Otherwise, correcting it after rasterizing will be very laborious.
