Okay, I'm not that proficient with PSP so bear with me on this.
We're gonna learn to make this siggy, putting the text on a curved path like "mommy to Daniel" in this siggy.
First thing I did was create a new document and typed out my text. You can use shapes to do this too, but I'm just using text in this example. I'm going to assume you already know how to do certain things so, if you don't know how to do something let me know and I'll go into more detail. You'll want the letter that you are going to use as your path on a seperate layer from the rest of your text.
Select the letter that you want to put your text over and click on Object>Convert to Path.
Select your text tool, then hover your mouse over the top of your letter and you'll see that your cursor has changes slightly. When it looks like the example below, click and then type your text.
Adjust to location and color of the text and you're all set.
I'm having a little bit of trouble here. Mine doesn't have convert to path. I was trying the convert text to curves,but it was looking rather funky. I do have fit text to path but it is greyed out. Here are some screen shots.
I have psp x2 also and you just need to make sure that the layer you are working with is a vector. If it is raster covert to path is not an option. HTH.
Okay, but wait, how do you do that? I am having the same problem as all of the other ladies. I don't have the option of "Convert Object to Path." Whenever I try to paste an image as a new layer, it seems to automatically come up as a raster layer. I can insert a new vector layer, but it stays blank and if I try to paste any image on it, the image comes up as a new layer called "Floating Selection."
Incidentally...what is the difference between a raster layer and a vector layer, anyway? Those terms are meaningless to me.
Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
