This curved text tutorial -- or rather curvy text -- was inspired by one of Saturday's email promos. I happen to be a customer, and I've purchased some jeans and tops. In fact, my slouch jeans have become a part of my daily uniform (yes, I actually bought several pairs in the same style). They have good stuff and so I like to keep in touch. Besides, as a lifelong student of anything related to web and graphic design, I appreciate that their emails are a feast for the eyes and inspire me to learn more. So, if you've ever wondered how to display curved text in Photoshop, check out this tutorial.
Start by creating a new document in Photoshop: File >> New. Also, make sure that both the Layers (Window >> Layers) and Paths Panels (Window >> Paths) are visible. Then, just follow the 2 steps below and make note of those sections to Pause and Observe.
Note #1: After you create the path, observe what happens:
Note #2: After you add your text, observe what happens:
- If you want to move your text, select the text layer in the Layers Panel and move it with the Move tool like you normally would.
- However, if you want to rotate your text, make sure that the path for the ellipse is NOT selected in the Paths Panel. You can unselect a path by clicking the empty area below the last path layer.
More curvy text ahead, but this time with the Pen Tool! Before moving, make sure to review the Pen Tool lesson, kay?
