Create a Circular Path Text on Photoshop

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to add type along a path! I’ll be using Photoshop CS5 for this tutorial but any version from CS on up will work. Photoshop gives us a few different ways to draw one. The method we use to draw your path, makes no difference as far as how we go about adding text to it because a path is a path no matter how it was created and the steps for adding type to it are always the same.

Step 1

Insert an image, Go to File > Open > Select the Image > OK


Step 2

To create a circular text effect, you must add the text to a path with the help of Ellipse shape tool.After selecting the Ellipse tool, you can see the Ellipse options panel at the top of the document window select the paths option, make an ellipse as above.


Step 3

Select the Horizontal Type tool from the Tools panel; choose your font settings from the Options Bar.


Step 4

Move the Type Tool directly over the path. The cursor icon will change to an I-beam with a dotted wavy line through it.Click anywhere along the path and begin adding your text. The spot you click on is where the text will begin, as you type, the text follows the direction of the path.
