How to Put Fonts in a Circle


Most graphic editing programs have different options to spruce up text that goes on images. You can add a drop shadow, an outline or even change the shape of the text. Whether you want circular text on a business logo or digital scrapbook page, your graphics program can create exactly what you need.

In Photoshop CS5

  • Open the image by clicking "File" then "Open." Browse for the image and click "Open."

  • Click the "Shape" tool on the toolbar and right-click to select "Ellipse." Click "Paths" from the menu at the top. Paths is designated by a square with circles at each corner with a pen in the middle.

  • Use the shape tool to draw a circle. The text will go on the outside ring, so choose a size that is appropriate for your text.

  • Click the "Text" tool from the side toolbar. Pick a font you want to use and click the line of the circle. Type what you want the image to say. The text will curve in a circular shape.

Adobe Elements

  • Open Photoshop Elements and create a new image.

  • Select the "Type" tool to type the text you want to appear on the image. Choose a font size that is appropriate for the image you want to create.

  • Click "Image," "Rotate" and "Layer 180" so text will display correctly when the circle is made.

  • Use the Transform tool by selecting "Ctrl+T." Change the "H" at the top menu to 200 percent.

  • Click "Filter," "Distort," "Polar Coordinates" and "Rectangular to Polar." Click "OK" to see your text in a circle.

Corel Paint Shop Pro

  • Open Paint Shop Pro, click "Preset Shapes" from the toolbar and choose a circle. Use the tool to create a circle the size of the text you want to add.

  • Click the "A" text icon on your toolbar to add text. Hover over the circle's border with the text cursor until it turns into a semi-circle and click the border.

  • Set the text properties by choosing a font and an appropriate font size. Add the text you want in a circle. Click "OK" to see your circular text.
