Wrapping Text in 3D In Photoshop

Wrapping Text in 3D In Photoshop

No "dimensional" type madness from Photoshop would be complete without one that wraps type around something.
      So, here's another one from Steve Patterson of Photoshop Essentials, to show you how to easily wrap text around a 3D object in Photoshop, without the need for any 3D software. You'll need Photoshop CS or higher for this tutorial, since is uses Photoshop's "text on a path" and 3D effects. (Again, heed warnings about the screen spam here, see warnings elsewhere with caution sign.)
