Can You Wrap Text in Photoshop?

Last updated on November 26, 2022 @ 11:41 am

Yes, you can wrap text in Photoshop. There are several ways to do this, but the most common is to use the ‘Pen Tool’.

In this example, we will try to wrap a paragraph text on the left side of this irregular-shaped element.

The Pen Tool can be found in the toolbar on the left, or by pressing ‘P’ on your keyboard. Once you have selected the tool, simply click around the edges of the shape and enclose it to create a close path where your paragraph will be placed.

After creating the close path, select the ‘Horizontal Type Tool’ from the left menu. Click inside the path, then type or paste your paragraph text into the path and it will automatically wrap around the side of the shape. You can fix the alignment of your paragraph using the ‘Paragraph’ option on the right menu.

Another way is to wrap your text around an element. In this example, the shape is already a path and we will try to wrap our text around it. The first thing to do is to select the layer that you want to wrap your text around.

Next is to select the ‘Path Selection Tool’ from the toolbar on the left, then click on the path to select it.

To add your text, click on the ‘Horizontal Type Tool’ from the toolbar and hover over the edge of the path and click on it once your cursor has a curve on it.

PRO TIP: Please be aware that wrapping text in Photoshop can be a tricky process, and there are a few things you need to know before attempting it. First, you need to make sure your text layer is selected. Then, go to the ‘Path Selection Tool’ to select your path and add text using the ‘Horizontal Type Tool’. Be sure to experiment with the different settings until you find one that works best for your project.


So, there you have it! You now know how to wrap text in Photoshop.

With this powerful tool at your disposal, you can create all kinds of amazing effects in your designs. So go ahead and experiment with different ways of wrapping text around objects – you might be surprised at what you come up with!
