In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll be sharing with you how you can use Photoshop to make text follow around an object or a specific shape. It’s a really useful tutorial and one that you can apply to almost anything. So want to start off by selecting the pen tool. And we want to select in particular the curvature pen tool, and we’re simply just going to draw an outline around our football.

So we’re just gonna draw a rough path around that. Don’t worry if it’s not completely around the football. It just has to be a rough path to make this work and look good. So once we’ve done that, we’re gonna then select the type tool, and it will create some text for us. From there, we’re just going to increase the font size. And if you want it too, we can add in our own custom text, initially just as Lorem Ipsum.

So if you go to blending options, we can change the color of the text to be white, and then you have all of your style options that you could then apply to the text. So we’re just gonna add a drop shadow to lift the text a little bit more. So that’s okay. And even from there, we can then adjust it, so it’s a little bit more space around the football and the text. This is a very useful tutorial and one that I hope you can use in your future design projects. Thanks for watching and stay tuned to “Creative Nerds” for five quick tips on how to use Photoshop.
