Warp and tweak your type easily in Photoshop to sit along a curved surface

Select the Type tool from the Toolbar and click once onto the canvas. Write your message, choose your desired font then set its font size.

With your font and sizing in position, go to the top bar and select Layer>Type>Warp Text. A dialog box will appear, so click onto the Style drop-down menu.

For our purposes we are using Arc, but play around with the other settings to suit your project’s needs.

Move the three sliders and watch how your text alters instantly. Small movements make a big change.

You can position the text with this dialog box still open by just clicking onto it and moving into place.

Applying layer styles help to blend the type into the building.
