How to Rasterize Text in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a great program to create and edit images in a professional way. These days, it is lauded as one of the best image editing software programs available in the market. It does not only allow you to edit the images, but you can also create images from the text layers. The process is called “Rasterization”.

    Check for any mistakes in the spellings or any other issue in the text. Make sure you have finalised the font of your choice, as it will not change after you rasterize the layer. Once you are done with finalising your text layer, you can continue with the rasterization process.
