How to use distorts and filters

Using effects on text

Text along a path

the text tool
The text tool

When you add text the following options appear.

These allow you to edit the size, colour and style of the font.

It also allows you to change the spacing between letters!

Change the values to see their effect on the screen.

glowing text
Glowing text

The glowing text effect is very easy to achieve.

It uses two layers. One layer is heavily “blurred” while the other is not touched.

This gives a “glowing” effect.

The text on the left is blurred. This is done by something known as a filter. Specifically a Gaussian blur. You can control how heavy a blur is using the options.

The blur values are shown above. The higher the value the heavier the blur. Gaussian blur is a great way of smoothing out noisy pictures or to create glowing effects.

distorts
Distorts

The filter menu contains many types of distorts which can produce some interesting effects.

The next few slides show the results of a few distorts on some text.

I have changed the default values in order to get the images. It is suggested that you play around with them to see what they can do!

activity
Activity

Divide a image into 4 and add 4 bits of text.

Now apply a different distort to each and finally add some extra effects to make the image interesting.

Hint using blend could produce some interesting results!

text along a path
Text along a path

Text along a path can be a bit tricky. Sometimes it is easier to use curve bend distort!

The first step is to draw the path you want to align your text to.

step 3 add a new layer
Step 3 – Add a new layer

Select the menu item “selection -> from path”

Then draw over the selection with a brush.

If nothing draws, add a new layer!

step 4 deselect
Step 4 - Deselect

Go to menu selection -> select none

Delete / hide the path (this is done in the path dialogue)

Done!

activity1
Activity

Create a new image.

Add a single sentence. Make sure it fits on a single line and takes up the width of the screen.

Try to make the text go along a curve.

activity2
Activity

Find a title / logo (which has text) on the internet which you like. It must stand out!

Try and create your own version of it with your name as the text!

Do not worry if the font style does not match perfectly.

Do not choose something too simple as well. The best way to learn is to give yourself a challenge.
