Learn how to put text on Photoshop paths

Photoshop offers you some very cool type features. One of them is the ability to warp your text around a vector path. You can use the pen tool to draw a path from scratch or you can use a custom shape. This Photoshop tutorial will show you how to get the effect done.

1. In this example I pressed U until I selected the Ellipse tool. Then I held down the Shift key and drew a circular vector path:

2.Press T to select the Text tool. Move the cursor upon the circle. The cursor changes its shape. Click and type your text:

3.When finished typing press Enter to confirm. Then press A to select the Path Selection Tool from the toolbar. Move the cursor upon the text. The cursor shape changes to a double-headed arrow:
