How to Make Circular Text Effect in Photoshop Tutorials

Sponsored Links


In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show how to create a circular text effect. We will make a text that can curve and follow the shape of path line. To be able to do this, we have to use Photoshop CS2 version or newer (such CS4 or the latest CS5 version). This Photoshop tutorial cannot be done with older version of Adobe Photoshop.

Step 1
Select Ellipse tool in the Photoshop tool box, and then click Paths button in the option bar. I have provided red pointer in this tutorial image below.


Step 2
Drag the pointer to make ellipse path. If you want a proportional ellipse, you have to press Shift key while dragging the pointer.


Step 3
Select Type tool in Photoshop toolbox and then click the path boundaries. You will notice that your text pointer is changing when it hover above the line.
