Can You Vectorize Text in Photoshop?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 3:20 pm

There are a few ways to vectorize text in Photoshop, and each has its own benefits and drawbacks. The first method is to use the “Text to Shape” tool.

PRO TIP: If you are considering vectorizing text in Photoshop, be aware that there are some potential risks involved. First of all, vectorized text can lose some of its sharpness and clarity when compared to original text. Secondly, if the text is not properly converted to a vector format, it can result in jagged or distorted edges. Finally, if you are not careful when vectorizing text, you may end up with unwanted results such as overlaps or gaps between letters.

This tool will convert your text into a vector shape, but it won’t preserve the original font or appearance of your text. The second method is to use the “Vectorize Text” command, which will preserve the original font but won’t allow you to edit the individual letters. The third method is to use a plugin like “Text2Shape,” which will preserve both the original font and appearance of your text.

The benefits of vectorizing text in Photoshop are that you can resize and edit your text without losing quality, and you can also create custom shapes and logos from your text. The drawbacks are that you can’t edit the individual letters once they’ve been vectorized, and you may lose some of the original formatting of your text.
