I'm drawing a poster for my chorus with photoshop cs4, to promote the music festival next month. To enhance our topics, I want to write text in a circle form. Could you give me some detail steps to write text in a circle form in photoshop cs4? thanks...
This tutorial uses two new features of Photoshop 5. The first is a feature that enables you to move the center of rotation of an object and the second is editable type layers. Good luck! Answered Dec, 11 2010
1 Start the Photoshop CS4 program . From the "File" ,select "Open." Select the file you wish to add text to.
2 Click the "Paths" icon on the top task bar right below the heading "Edit." It is the second of three "shape" icons. You will see the word "Paths" when you hover over it.
3 Select the ellipse shape from the "Shapes" tool. Move to the work area of your image. While holding down the "Shift" key, click and hold down the right mouse button and drag the circle to the desired size.
4 Select the text icon "T" from the tool palette. Place the text cursor over the path; it will show a letter "T" with a diagonal slash through it when positioned properly. Start typing your text after selecting the font, size and color. The text will automatically type around your circle.
5 Adjust the text to fit, if it does not fully complete the circle, by increasing the spacing between the letters. Click on the top task bar on the heading "Window" and then check off "Character" on the drop-down menu.
6 Increase the space between the letters on the "Character" pop-up window by selecting the "A-V" with a double arrow icon pointing outward. Increase the numbers in that box until the text completes the circle .
7 Move the position of your completed circle on the canvas by selecting the "Path Selection Tool" icon on the side tool palette. Answered Jan, 11 2011
Hello! In PPT 2010, go to Insert --> WordArt --> enter text --> "Text Effects" from ribbon --> "Transforms" and find one that best approximates your needs. Then adjust / tweak text and text shape to match. (Drawing helper shapes, like semi-transparent circles, might help in that.)
Hope you had since found the answer - but because this came up in bing searches, posting it up for people to find later. Answered Jun, 08 2011
