Tutorial-Text on a Path (Photoshop CS5)

There is a simple way of making your layouts and designs more interesting by adding Text on paths and shapes.  Here I will show you how!

Make sure the Path icon is selected
and then create a path using the Pen Tool


Select the Type Tool and place it over the path. You will see a wavy line going through the type tool, now click anywhere on the path to start typing. You can also use the Path Selection Tool to move the text around on the path

You can also use the Ellipse Tool, making sure the Path icon remains selected and draw your circle

Select the Type Tool and
place it over the path to start typing
To use a different shape go to the
Custom Shape Tool and choose from the different types of shapes. Here I selected a heart (remember the Path icon needs to be selected in order to create a path)
I placed some text on the path and used the Path Selection Tool to move the text towards the inside of the heart

That's it, hope this tutorial helps! :)
