You would just make the letter in a large font when you type the text.

What I do is use the magic wand tool and select inside the letter and then go to Select>modify>expand and expand my selection by 3 or 4 pixels. Then select on the photo layer and invert my selection by going to Select>Invert and then hit the delete button on your keyboard.

Make sure you're on the text layer when you do that. When you're ready to delete, then you select the photo layer.

You are probably on the wrong layer. Look at your layer palette and make sure you are actually on the letter layer.

Looks like we posted at the same time Rachel.
