Welcome to EarlK Design!


The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Other Days with Earl Episode 17: Text in a Shape-Basic

In Episode 16 of Other Days with Earl I showed you how to put text on a path. In this companion Episode I will show you how to put text inside a shape that is created by a closed path.

I show you how the cursor of the Horizontal Type Tool changes when it is around a path.

 I will tell you what the little symbols mean when you have entered text into a shape.
 

And. I will show you several ways to create shapes in which you can place text. One of the ways is to use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to create a shape that follows the contours of a flower in a photograph.



I will also show you how to add an interesting stroke around your text, such as this one.


Or, even this one.
