It's possible to warp our type in Photoshop and retain that type as still…being live editable type.…So here is an example of some warped type, and warped type has this appearance.…This is what its layer thumbnail looks like, just to indicate that you have…a warp applied to it.…So if I select that and then come and click on my Warping options up here on the…Tool options, we can see that this has an arch applied to it.…There are 15 different warping effects.…They are exactly the same effects as you have in Illustrator.…
What you can't do is you can't combine them, which you may find a little bit…limiting, and there may be some things you need to do that require you to go…beyond warping your text.…So warping may get you so far, at which point you may then need to convert your…type to a shape layer, and then you can pull around as much as you want. But at…that point of course it's not any longer editable as type.…But what we're going to do here in this movie is just stay with editable…live type just using the standard warp effects.…
