Chapter 3. Jealous Type: Cool Type Effects > Type on a Path and Curled Ribbons

Type on a Path and Curled Ribbons

Photoshop CS did add one of the most long-time requested features—type on a path; and we attach type to a circular path while building this logo, but I think the star of this technique is later on in the process, when you create a curved ribbon banner (like you'd normally do with the Pen tool in Adobe Illustrator) from right within Photoshop. It's so easy you may never go back to the old Illustrator way again.

Quick Tip: Clipping Groups are now Clipping Masks

Adobe realized that the name Clipping Group wasn't a really accurate description of what a Clipping Group does (which is a mask on the image on the top layer, with the text, shape, or photo on the layer beneath it); so in its ongoing effort to make all the commands make sense, they changed the name of Clipping Groups to Clipping Masks, and the command (under the Layer menu) that creates a Clipping Group has been changed to Create Clipping Mask. See, now you won't freak out looking for a Clipping Group that isn't there.
