    Many times, I need to move a piece of text smoothly up and down or
    left and right. However, I cannot do it because whenever there is
    another text layer present (and visible), the movement in question is
    in small steps and not smooth. What exactly do I have to do?
    Thank you!

  2. Turn off snap. I think it is Window->Snap.

    Assuming the text is on a separate layer, select the Move tool and you
    can nudge it 1 pixel at a time with the arrow keys on the numeric
    keypad. Hold down shift and these keys move it 10 pixels per tap. If
    you need to move it a long ways and don't want to use the arrow keys
    just hold down shift to keep the movement on a 90 degree axis and avoid
    slight misalignment.

    The best way to find out how to do that is search using
    google or msn search and type in "photoshop basics tutorials" caused it
    would take too much to explain it to
    you. Plus you will learn alot more than just that technique.
    There are real good Photoshop resources out there....
