Shaping Text In Photoshop

Posted by: | Posted on: May 29, 2020

One of the great advantages of using Photoshop CS2 is its tremendous versatility. In addition to applying great effects to images, you can also use Photoshop to manipulate text.

Photoshop’s Warp Text feature enables you to wrap or bend text around an object in your image to make eye-catching, customised banners or headlines. Additionally, you can warp text in either the horizontal or vertical direction to give your text a distinctive look and feel. There are many ways to manipulate text in Photoshop images, but this will give you a place to start, especially if you’ve never worked with Photoshop’s text features before.

Open an image to which you want to add text. Select the horizontal text tool from the toolbar and click the image close to where you want to place your text. Type the text you wish to add. While in Text mode, you can also apply standard style enhancements like italics, bold or underline to your text.

Once you’ve finished adding text, select and right-click it to open the contextual menu. Select Warp Text…to open the Warp Text dialogue box. Within this box, you can select from a number of pre-defined text warps using the Style pull-down menu. Select the warp that comes closest to the effect you’re trying to achieve. If you’re not sure about the kind of warp you want, you can try some out to see what effect they have on your image text.

Beneath the Style pull-down, you’ll find several sliders that will enable you to fine-tune the warp effects. You can adjust the text bend, and the horizontal and vertical distortion. If you don’t want to use the sliders, you can also enter a percentage value for these three properties. When you have achieved the proper effect, click OK. The Text effects WordPress will be applied to your image.
