    Default Subway Art

    So you know how there's awesome subway art all over Pinterest? I want to make my own, but I want my words to be in a block where it is all is squared. I hope you know what I mean? I don't want the first line to be longer or shorter than the second, third, fourth line...etc. I want all the lines to be the appear to be equal in width.

    Is that possible in PSE9?

    I know in CS5 - you can change the spacing between the letters. Is this what you would want? So a 3 letter word would be as a long as a 6 letter word but them spacing between the letters can be bigger?

    Do you have examples of what you are talking about? I will go check Pinterest and see if I can figure it out.

    Otherwise, if you want the spacing the same between the letters, you just use the Free Transform tool to resize the text too.

    Yes, exactly. I know i can do it manually by adjusting spacing and font size, but wanted to be able to keep it more square...you know how newspapers and magazines keep columns. I'm wondering if I should make it in Word. Hmmm...

    I've recently made some subway art, but I just messed around with spacing. It's not perfect, but I made it fill the page, if that makes sense. I don't see how that's really relevant to your question but ... yeah.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I was trying to avoid finagling the sizes myself. I did create a column in a WORD document and am playing with the art there. Then, I'll try to copy it over to PSE9 to make it pretty.

    I think the justify text would be what you want - that is what they do in newspapers. Try Ctrl + J or Ctrl + Shift + J
