« on: March 09, 2016, 01:03:06 PM »
I am trying to figure out how to fit text to fill the attached shaped along the outline. any suggestions?
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I seem to remember a program that would do that for you. Gotta hunt a little bit.

Or for GIMP:

I'm using paint.net, which is similar, and I don't think what I want to do is possible with it or gimp.

this would be perfect - but I no longer have PS

off topic but, not for nothing, if you do a lot of photo editing, you can get PS and LightRoom for $10/mo

which is better than the normal Adobe price of $19/mo for just 1 product (like photoshop) or the who creative suite which is at least $50/mo last I checked.

Man I can't help it if you use some obscure graphics program....

Maybe you could figure it out with Janvas? janvas.com but I can't seem to get the Text To Path tool working so...
