Putting text inside an outline? (like THE MONKEES logo)

Postby vambo » Mon Nov 01, 2004 2:09 pm

You know how the group The Monkees have their name in the shape of a guitar? Is there a plugin or a technique to shape text to the outline of an object like that? Even if you do vector text and pull it into shape, it's not really very good. I'd love to have a plugin that can do this quickly.

Thank you! :D

There are several photoshop plugins to do this.
But I concentrated on your statement that you wanted to do this "easily".

Look at a program called "Serif Drawplus".
Its a stand alone program you would have to run it outside photoshop, but creates the effect very easily. Saved graphic can then be pulled into photoshop for further manipulation.


text shaped as you like

In paint shop pro it is very easy. Once you set your lettering in vector, right click and "undo". Click on the object tool go to the image and click there and the vector box disappears and you control each letter individually!
