    'Curve' text in Photoshop

    In Photoshop, I would like to have text go around a circle without the text getting distorted. I have played around a bit but have not been able to do it. Any ideas how to achieve this. Thanks

    Well Photoshop CS2 decided to corrupt itself, so I cannot test this for you. But can't you just turn the distortion off? When you go into the Text Style thing I thought you can fiddle about with settings. (I'll try and get Photoshop working for you)

    I'm not sure how to do this. I tried the warp tool to get the text go round the circle...not the best results as the text goes horribly blurry. How do you turn the 'distortion' off?

    Isn't there a type on a path tool in photoshop???


    There is in Illustrator and then you simply draw a circle and select the type on a path tool and click the circle and you can then follow the path of the circle.


    For any sort of text play or design, I would personally use Illustrator as it the best program for text, whreas photoshop is better for image manipulation etc.

    There is a path tool in Photoshop. You can either draw a circle or any shape for that matter or use the Pen Tool to create complex path and then type on the path.

    Although, I've never used Illustrator, I think Photoshop follows the same steps as the first in that respect.

    You can do that in illustrator. Works a treat coupled with envolope distort options.

    …as well as in Fireworks by attaching text to a path. These programs are better suited than Photoshop for actual graphic design anyway.

    I would say Illustrator or inDesign is your best bet for what you are looking to do, assuming you have access to them.
