Changing Letter Colors in Photoshop

Recently, I was working on a project for a customer and they wanted each letter to be a different color in a sentence. I first tried to manually type each letter and then change the font color and this was just too time-consuming. I found a much easier to type out the sentence and then change the color. Here's how:

1.Select the Horizontal Type tool in the toolbox.

2.In the Layers palette, select the layer containing the type.

3.In the document window, select the characters that you want to change.

4.In the options bar at the top of the work area, click the color swatch.

5.In the Color Picker dialog box, locate the color range you want using the triangle sliders on the color spectrum bar, and then click the desired color in the color field. The color you select appears in the top half of the color swatch. The original color remains in the bottom half.

6.Click OK. The new color replaces the original color in the options bar and in the selected characters. (You won't see the new color in the characters until you deselect them or select something else.)
