Typing circular text in Photoshop


I accept I might be a bit stupid when it comes to certain functions in Photoshop but for the past six months or so I’ve tried – without success – to create text in a perfect circle in Photoshop.

My attempts have been made using the Warp Tool which makes text distort.

I’ve Googled this problem only to be shown the Warp Tool method again and again. I just assumed I was doing something wrong.

Finally this evening I put out an SOS call on Twitter.

And God bless everyone who offered up advice. It was, however, Shawn Collins who saved my bacon. He pointed me to this YouTube video (below) tutorial from TutCast. Shawn – you rock!

The video is short and simple. Everything I love and it works like a dream.
