Photoshop Text on a Circular Path
Via our Contact Us page The Photoshop Nuts were asked if we could explain how to put text on a circle. This was covered a while back by Michael Hoffman in his post Working With Type On a Path as a written tutorial but I thought I’d create a video for those that prefer to learn that way too.
In the video, I also explain a technique for creating concentric circles and explain why you’d want to have two windows displaying one image.

Great info. Was wondering how this was done.
Not being able to see the top bar in PS is a drawback for me because I’m new to PS.** Also, I’d sure like to be able to download it so I don’t have to keep my browser open. I’ve only managed to make one path so far. Hmm… I’ll figure it out eventually though. Thanks for posting.
**I can’t see the tools you selected, for example, to make the stroke white and three points wide.
You’re a really great teacher. Very easy to follow and I learned a lot. Thanks!
It’s such a shame that Adobe, having absorbed and destroyed Freehand, didn’t bring some of FH’s features to Shop and Illustrator. To right the letters on the bottom of the circle all one needed to do was hit return where you wanted the text to break to the bottom. You could also align handles/nodes/control points with the align tools. Such brilliant features, not only killed off but wasted.
I really thanks for you! it is useful to me at the right time..
I am wanting to edit the text of a previous psd file of the circular text but cannot get the original text selected to edit. How do I do this?
