Photoshop Elements (PSE) is keeping a secret from us! Did you know you could do a “full” text justify in PSE? Let’s take a look at this feature.
I am using PSE 2018 for this tutorial and screenshots, but I believe this might work in other PSE versions as well. (PSE 15 has been tested successfully).
When you select the Text Tool, you see 3 options in the Tool Options at the bottom of the page: Left Justify, Center Justify, and Right Justify.
Here is an example of each type of justification.
You would think because there are only 3 options in the Tool Options, that there are only 3 options available, right? Not true!
Select the Type Tool, and draw out a text box. Type your text in the box.
There is a shortcut you can use to get a full justification: With your text selected, Control + Shift + J will fully justify your text, expanding each line to give you straight edges on the right and left sides.
Full justification looks really nice, especially when writing in column format. So if you decide to write a Christmas newsletter, and decide to use columns, remember this trick: Control + Shift +J!
