gimp or photoshop text along a shape?

Filed under: gfx — Seth Wisely @ 22:29

of the zillions of tutorial matches for gimp [anything] or photoshop [anything] no a single match for text along a shape — like a no sign.  Sure there’s text along a path but no way of avoiding that fun level of circuity?

a few interesting new subdirectories on mozilla ftp pub

I prefer the FILE transfer protocol for transferring  files to http, thanks.

in a slightly related note it is vexing to convince KPT5 to play well with portable GIMPhoto.. sigh.  I would use a more recent GIMP-win but I prefer the photoshop-esque gui of GIMPhoto — I wish the GIMPhoto guy would abandon binary hacking and roll his pixie dust in pre-compile!

And while I’m wishing…

(1) I wish GIMP(hoto) File:new would pickup dimensions of images stored on the clipboard like actual-photoshop does.

(2) I want a CTRL+J : copy selection into new layer (in position of selection)
