There are two different ways to add a warp to a type layer. You can either select the Type tool by tapping on the T key, and then click on the Type Warp option in the Options bar and in the Warp Text dialog box, we can choose from a variety of different styles. Say for example, we want to add a slight arch to this. We'll choose that style and then decrease the Bend in order to just get a very mild warp. Clicking OK will apply that warp, but one of the nice features about a text warp in Photoshop is that you're able to re-edit that at any time.
I could re-edit it by clicking on the Type Warp option in the Text Options bar or I can go to the second way to apply a text warp and that's under the Edit menu to Transform, and then Warp. You can see that I have the same set of presets or styles here, but I can also change the Bend options by simply clicking and dragging in the image area in order to change that Bend value. When I like the warp that I've applied, we'll tap the Return or Enter key in order to apply it. So not only is the type warping re-editable, but the type is also editable.
So with my Type tool selected, if I triple-click anywhere inside of that text block, you'll notice that I could change this text to say something else, like leaves. When I hold down the Command key and tap the Return or Enter key, you can see that I can apply that warp to that re-edited text. So there you have it, two easy ways to add a warp to a type layer in Photoshop.
