I was used to use Corel Draw, but I like photofltre better!
It's simple and easy and... also available in Dutch.
I'm a dutch woman, you see. :P

This is my question (I did it in Corel, but don't know how to do it in Photofiltre):

How do I fit text to a defined path? For example to a curve...

Hi Joke,

There is 2 ways to proceed, using each one a different plugin.
You can find 3 responses, by doing a little Search with the good button above this page and use text + path as key,
select "International" as Category, [strike]check "Only display reference topics"[/strike] and you get the right answer in english language.

To download easier the Photofiltre plugins, you can use a new light software :

Thanks for helping me with the easier way to install the plugins.
But...
I did'nt find the solution of my problem. :roll:

I tried the pluggin Text2path. Very nice.
But the text doesn't fit to a selfdrawn line or so.
I want the text on a curve, waved,...

Is there any solution on that?

I hope so!

Have you tried the other solution with the Past Inside plugin ?
http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/forum ... 9957#79957

The both plugins are downloaded with a txt file which gives some explanations.

For Text2path, you can see, for example :
Quote:
Text 2 Path renders text along the outline of a saved selection.

Do you mean Paste into?
That's the only one I can find, a little bit close to your description...

Well, I find Paste Inside...
But when I manage to have the text just at the up-side of the curved selection (with freehand), the fonts are so disfigured... Not nice! :(

This is what I mean.
It is not on the outside of a whole selection, but just on a line.

Yes it is not so easy with PF for this special feature,
but some results can be got and combined :

Image

Image
1- Filter Deform/Spherise/Lens
2- Filter Deform/Twirl
3- Plugin Deform

Image
4- Twirl + Spherise
5- Plugin Paste Into on a lasso selection
6- Filter 8BF Pinnochio by Richard Rosemann.

Or with several half circles :

With Text2path :

but you need to build a bitmap shape : selection filled in black and saved with Contour to Selection plugin.

Thanks for all your efforts to help me out!

I think the last image is most like mine.
Funny enough: its by using Text2path. :)

But I don't quite understand your instructions:

It's easy to fill a selection in black. But what do you mean with:
Quote:
saved with Contour to Selection plugin


I can't find that plugin anywhere in my program either. :oops:

The plugin is named Contour on this page :
http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/plugi ... hp?lang=en

but it is named Contour to selection in menu Tools/Plugins/

This plugin works only on a shape to define a selection, which refine quality will partialy depend on the number of points saved in the pfs file.
For a handly (lasso) designed shape which will be followed regularly by a text, optimize with value 2 or 3.

After the selection is saved, open this one in the selections menu of Text2Path.

With the key text + path you find also a link towards a tutorial of Bill.
It seams you didn't it seen. :wink:
