Perspective Text in Photoshop

The perspective function found under the Edit menu’s Transform submenu is not avaliable for type layer. You can rasterize the layer to use the Perspective transformation, but when you change the angle the text becomes blur. Another option is to convert the type layer to a shape layer to keep it sharp. You can’t edit the text anymore but you can modify the paths, add layer styles, alter the vector mask and use other transformation tools.


1- Create a new blank document and click the Type tool.

2- Select your desire font, style, justification, etc.

3- Type some text.

4- Click the commit button.

  16. This definitely got the text perspective effect I was looking for. Oddly though it would change the font color of the text once it was converted to shape. I had a sentence with white, red, and blue color – but once converted the whole thing switches to white. Annoying but oh well.
