How To Curve Text In Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop, a versatile graphics editing tool, offers an array of features that allow you to tweak your images with precision and control. One such feature enables users to curve text around a shape or a path. This blog post will guide you through a simple step-by-step process on how to curve text in Photoshop.

Step 1: Create a New Document

Firstly, launch Photoshop, and create a new document. Navigate to File > New and select the dimensions you require for your project.

Step 2: Draw a Path

The next step involves drawing a path where you want your text to follow. You can create a path using any shape tool, such as the Ellipse tool, Rectangle tool, or the Pen tool. Let’s use the Ellipse tool for this example. Select the Ellipse tool from the toolbar (or simply press the U key).

Step 3: Adding Text to the Path

Now, let’s add some text to your path. Go to the toolbar and select the Horizontal Type Tool (or press T). Then, move your cursor over the path. Once your cursor changes to a squiggly line (Type on a path tool), click on the path and start typing your text.

Step 4: Adjusting Your Text

You can adjust your text according to your requirements. To do so, click on the Direct Selection tool in the toolbar. You will see two lines on the path with a small square at the ends. You can drag these to adjust the placement and direction of your text.

Step 5: Finalizing Your Text

Once you’re satisfied with your curved text, press the Commit transform button in the options bar or simply press Enter to finalize your text.


And there you have it! You now know how to create curved text in Photoshop. This feature can be incredibly useful in designing logos, creating unique titles, or just adding a creative touch to your images. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different paths and placements to achieve the desired effect. Practice makes perfect, so keep honing your Photoshop skills.
