How to force Italic fonts in Photoshop

For a lot of fonts there is not an Italic type option available by default, but there is still a neat Faux Italic Photoshop option that can turn any font into an Italic type.

1.
 

Great deal of  fonts have an italic type option available by default, but even some of the most wide spread ones, like Tahoma don't come in Italic. This is what you need to do.

Open a new Photoshop document and choose the type tool.

 
 
2.
 

Choose Tahoma font (or any other font you want to turn italic) and write something.

As you can see, you can only choose Regular or Bold type for Tahoma, but no Italic.

Select the text.

 
 
3.
 

In the menu click Window and activate Character.

 
 
4.
 

Find the Character options window then click the more options button (see picture).

 
 
5.
 

Now simply choose the Faux Italic type in the menu.

As you can see you can also use the Superscript, Subscript and all other type that are not available by default.

 
 
6.
 

Your text should now turn italic.

 
 
7.
 

Even quicker way to change the type into italic or back into regular, simply click the italic button (T).
