I've been hammering away at a map - my first one I feel good enough about to post - and was looking for help with text. I just don't like the photoshop text tools, and though I tried to search this forum for help, apparently I'm a noob, because I can't find any posts that deal specifically with this.

Can you guys help me out? What do you use for your map labels?

I created the map in CS 2, primarily using pasis' "Creating mountains and other terrains in Photoshop" tut, with the coastlines and 'shelf's' from Ascension's Atlas style tut.

I'm 'grouping' my labels by type (city names, country names, etc), but was hoping for something much easier.

If you have any pointers about the map, I'd appreciate that as well.
