View Full Version : Vector text

03 March 2008, 07:54 AM
Is there anyway to change text in to a shape(vector/path) so it can be edited with the pen tool and what not. I need to be able to do it with in photoshop or some format that will let me import it in.

Ive gone as far as to create it in 3dsmax and import it in to illustrator, but then there dosent seem to be a way to get in back in to photoshop in any vector format.

Select the type layer and menu layer>type>create work path. You now have paths.

Just been doing this myself and remembered your thread:

Right Click on font layer in PS and choose 'convert to shape' I think this will give you a more accurate result than convert to workpath

hope you still needed the help lol :D
