fit text around a circle with top aligned to circle



  • 1. Removing smoke from sky
    A better place for asking would be to post your message in the PSP group on the server.

  • 2. Zoom in and out with mousewheel
    I'm using PSP 9.01. So far, I used the mousewheel to zoom in and out pictures. Now this does not work any more, no idea why. In other programs, the mouswheel works as before. I tried to repair the installation with the installation CD and re-loaded the update: no result. I did not find a clue in the preferences settings. What is wrong? Thank you for your advice

Where's a bit? Did you try to attach a file to this text-only group? Since you mention lots of good sky, I'd select a piece of that large enough to cover the smoke plus extra around the edges, promote it to a layer, and move the layer over the smoke. Match the lightness of the layer to the background with Histogram Adjustment, then fine tune lightness with the L/D brush, saturation as necessary, and finish with a big soft eraser around the edges to blend with the background. Cloning works too, but is tedious with a large area like this. -- Fred Hiltz, fhiltz at yahoo dot com

fit text around a circle with top aligned to circle

help! I have text fitted to a circle object, but it's with the bottom
of the text hugging the circle and going clockwise around.  I want the
top of the text to hug the bottom of the circle, going
counter-clockwise, if that makes any sense. Can I do this?

I'm using PSP10

If I have grasped what you mean this is how. The text is following the path. 
The correct name Being text on a path. Its just that your path is a joined 
at each end to form a circle. if you select the vector shape with the pen 
tool set to edit mode. then right click menu and click the reverse path. 
This will move the text to the bottom but it will be inside the circle. next 
step in the layers pallet expand the vector layers if there not already, and 
right click the text layer pick edit text from the menu.
Looking at the text tool ribbon/toolbar, and find the Offset option it may 
be hidden if so click the right pointing arrow head after line style to 
expend the tool bar.  You will need to put in a negative amount to move the 
text down it will depend on the size of text and circle but start with -20 
If that is not enough increase a bit at a time giving it time to change the 
text position.

THANK YOU! I'm new at this stuff (obviously), and I had a feeling I had
to do something like what you said, but I just couldn't quite figure it

I followed your instructions and I managed to do it!

Really appreciate the help.
