How do you put text on a circle?
Patty from New Jersey, CSA, using Photoshop CS with Windows XP, writes in with:
[Quote:] I understand that you can create a "path" and have text follow this path weather it be wavy or a complete circle. Can you instruct step by step?
One of the new features of Photoshop CS is the ability to bind text to a path like most other programs have been able to do since the '80s.
It really doesn't matter what kind of a path it is so long as it's a path.
Create your circle using the Ellipse tool from the tool box, or create your own path using the Pen tool.
Once you have your path, select the type tool and position its cursor over the path. You may have to wave it around a bit until you find the sweet-spot -- at which time the text editing cursor will appear. Then click.
You're now ready to key in or paste your text. Select all to change text attributes or paragraph settings.
