Perspective Text in Photoshop

In this tutorial, you will learn how to add perspective to text in photoshop and keep its sharp edges - in four simple steps.

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.

2- Click Edit.

3- Click Transform.

4- Click Perspective.

    I experimented with taking a look at your blog with my new iphone 4 and the format does not seem to be correct. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellphone layouts are not really working with your website.

    I was basically wanting to know if you ever considered switching the page layout of your site? Its well written; I enjoy what youve got to say. But maybe you can create a a bit more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got a great deal of text for only having one or two photos. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Get help when you need it — pair programming is a way of learning. Things will go faster and better. The key is to distinguish when you really need it v. when to have fun figuring it out.

  38. JustJessee - March 1, 2017 11:44 pm

    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.
