Moving Text

Moving Text
I added text to a new layer on a photo, I was able to adjust the angle to fit what I wanted but I am unable to move the text to where I want it on the photo. I would expect that there would be a select tool so that I could select objects and move them around but all I find is tools to paint with and such. Surely there is a way to move a text box around. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

With the Move tool (Move) you can move the text layer at will (with the default Move tool settings, you have to click the text layer where is opaque before you drag it).
