You alter the text font, size, colour etc in the text layer. When you have finished merge the layers but save as a different file so you can go back and redo if necessary.

Re: writing text on photo

Well done for having a go at 77 I don't use CS so I'm going from memory here......I think if you highlight the text it should bring up the text edit dialogue. You will have the option to alter font, size etc and also the colour. It's there somewhere. maybe someone else can be more precise.

Re: writing text on photo

Open the image in photoshop and then select the TEXT LAYER
Now you need to select the CHARACTER PALETTE from the righthand side of the screen. (It is a capital A with a vertical line immediately to itís right.)
On the lower righthand side of the palette is a box with a solid colour in it. Click on the coloured box and another window will open which will then allow you to change the colour of the text.
