How to Create Circular Text on a Path in Photoshop CS3
I have a really quick method how you can create circular text on a path without having to use the pin tool and go through the pain of actually creating a path to begin with. This is really simple. So what you want to do is I have a blank canvas. You might want to do this on top of your photo and I simply filled that with a color. So it looks a little bit better when I add my text.
So next of all, I'm going to choose my text tool and then I'm going to go up. I could change the font. I could change the size if I’d like. I'm going to change the color and then I'm going to click on here and you want to have, you know, probably about five to eight words, something that’s going to be enough where you can actually tell that’s its circular. I'm going to go ahead and type and I'm going to go ahead just move it. Go back to my text tool, click after it and then I'm going to click at this button right here to create work text. And for style, you want to choose ark.
Now it’s got it automatically. I'm going to move this down, create your circle. Now it’s not quite as bent as I would like it. So you can increase this and you can make it more of a circle or you can also decrease it if you want it to show up on the bottom. And then for vertical distortion, you want to go ahead and you want to change this to, I would say, whatever looks good, usually a little bit in the negative. I'm going to go ahead and do negative eight, in this way, it doesn’t look quite so flat. I'm going to go ahead and click on OK. I'm going to actually select it and then change it to a little smaller so it will fit. In this way, I can change it.
And of course if you’d like this more circular, you can go ahead and you can use the text tool to go back, and you could change that even more to get even more of a bend if you’d like. Click OK, and that’s a quick and easy way to create circular text on the path without having to use the pen tool.
