Can anyone explain to me how to tilt my selection in photoshop?
I have some text that that I want to tilt to about a 45 degree angle.

To do [A] just type some text in photoshop, right click on the text and then click on "warp text". It takes a bit to get the effect you want exactly but just mess with the options there and you'll get it. I used an arc with the first to setting at 0 and the third at +15
To do B just write some text in a new window then click on "image" -> "rotate canvas" the choose arbitrary and type in 45 degrees then right click on the layer, and duplicate to the image you need it on.
if thats not what you need let me know.

B is what I was looking for. I thought there was a way to do it wtih copying and pasting though.

1) Make a selection area with one of the Selection tools.
2) Right click within the selection and choose "Free Transform" from the context menu.
3) Right click again within the selection and choose "Free Rotate Selection" from the context menu.
4) Grab any border/edge of your selection and drag it around in a circle.

Yeah, what CBS said. Free transform. If you want exactly a 45, hold the shift key while you drag.
