Curve Text in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how you can curve text in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, we should have Photoshop opened.
We should either create a new document or open an existing one. There are other VisiHow videos on how to do that. There is one document opened in the video, which is indicated by the tab at the left-hand side. That document has two layers. The text and background layers. There is a VisiHow video on how to add text as a layer.
We select the text layer. It will turn blue.
We can move the layer with text around.
We click the "T" icon at the bottom left-hand side. The options at the top will be changed.
We click the option with the letter "T" on a curve to edit our options.
We can select "Arc" in "Style".
We can select "Arc Lower" in "Style".
We can select "Arc Upper" in "Style".
We can select "Arch" in "Style".
We can select "Bulge" in "Style".
We can select "Shell Upper" in "Style", and so on. It is recommended to experiment. We can get some quite nice effects by going through the "Style" list.
For whatever style we select, we can change the "Bend" value. We change how far it is going to be, and if it is going to be more dramatic. We just drag the slider. The text layer will be updated live so that we can see what we are doing.
We can also enter the "Bend" value by typing it at the right-hand side. Let's type "+90". We can see that the value can be changed quite easily.
We can change the "Horizontal Distortion" if we want the effect more visible at one side or the other. We can also change the number in the box at the right-hand side as well.
We can change the "Vertical Distortion". We can click and drag the slider to see what value we prefer.
We click "Cancel" if we don't want to keep the changes. We'll go back where we were before.
Alternatively, we just click "OK" to add the changes.
We can click the "T" icon again to type something else in the text layer.
We just click the check icon when we are satisfied with the text changes. We are back to our canvas.
This is a VisiHow video. We've just shown you how you can curve text in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below. We'll do our best to get back to you.
