Screenshots are Photoshop CS.
When Photoshop CS was launched one of the biggest improvements was
its ability to handle text – at last it was possible to make
a path, and get the text to follow that path. However, if you’d
like to make your text into a circle, and don’t have CS do
give this very simple tutorial a try.
First, make a new document, with your favourite
colour as a background; I made mine 700 x 700 pixels, 200 d.p.i.
Then type whatever words you would
like to make your circle, position it fairly centrally on your document.
Now hold down your shift key (to constrain the
selection to a square) and make a square selection around the text.
Now, click, Filter> Distort > Polar Coordinates,
and click “Yes” when you are prompted to rasterize.
Make sure that the Rectangular to Polar is selected
and click OK.
There you are – it is as easy as that!
I have seen other ways of making text in a circle
but this one is so simple – I saw it as a tip from Element
