So I know how to warp text along a custom path. But the thing is while writing text on a path, the characters also tilt along the path, I want them to be straight like when using "warp text". Is there anyway to do that? Thanks in advance. Screenshot 2021-04-03 224310.png

 Here is what I'm talking about. The characters of the text along the path is tilted along the path while the "warp" below are still straight up.

There's no automatic method that I can think of, but if you turn the Type layer into a shape layer from the Type menu, then you can select each letter with the Direct Selection tool, and use Free Transform to rotate.

That is a very good observation.

Illustrator is doing that easy peasy but not Photoshop to my knowledge…

You could import from illustrator in a smart object in case of further modifications…

The issue here is that the following version is literally having the baseline of the font follow the curve of the line. You would need to create some way of changing the orientation of the typeface to be true vertical. Not sure if a script could do this?

In the Type Options Bar to the right of the color patch is a T with an arced line below it. Click for options.

First type your copy, then use this feature to bend it.

Note your slider options in Flag
