Hi Peoples!

I’m working on a flyer template, and I’ve done a perspective distort on some text. But my question is can you do distort effects on text without rasterizing it? Would be good to keep it editable.

Cheers!

You cannot do a Distort or Perspective in CS4 on a Text item without first Rasterizing the layer.

EDIT : However, if you create a layer, make it a smart object, you can then Distort or Perspective change the Text item.

I know you can in CS5 but I am not sure what version you using!

You should know if you can or not by trying to edit once you have done the distort, or do you mean something else?

Ok I’ll try a smart object. I’m working in CS4 .

Nice work on the fast replies! :D

EDIT -

I just tried using a smart object, seems to work fine. Sometimes just gotta bounce your thoughts off of some one.

Actually another question – what’s the earliest version of photoshop which can use smart objects?

Appears to be CS3 , if I recall right, plus:

EDIT : Also should be good in CS2 , Version 7 – Correct me, anyone if I am wrong.
