Photoshop refers to the various warping options as styles, but by default, the Style option at the very top of the dialog box is set to None.We've chosen 'Arc' here. As soon as you select a style, Photoshop applies it to the text in the document, giving an instant preview of how the text will look with the chosen effect.
❹ Customize the Warp
Once we've chosen a style, we can adjust the intensity of the warping effect using the Bend option. The Bend value is set to 50% by default, but we can easily adjust it by dragging the slider left or right. If you look directly above the Bend option in the Warp Text dialog box, you'll find two more options that control the direction of the warp, Horizontal and Vertical. Try them out and get the perfect alignment for your text. After adjusting your text, click the checkmark in the Options bar to accept it.
