I am trying to create a postmark effect of my own and so add my own custom text, but I can't see how to curve text around a shape. It seems one of the hardest to find images online is an image of a postmark not covering or covered by anything else! I've had a look around the forum here and on Google but not yet found the answer. I never say impossible, but like the name says, Pixelmator is mainly focused to work with pixels. It will take a lot, too much steps to create a stamp image with any pixel-based program. Even Photoshop sucks at most basic type-setting features. That´s why there are vector programs to create such things, CorelDraw and Illustrator being the shareware leaders. The image You posted takes less than 2 minutes to create with CorelDraw. Including the effects that mimic color spreading on envelope paper if wished. Yes, that's what I'm after. I know it's possible in Paint Shop Pro which I have on a Windows Vista virtual machine, so might have to go over there for this one. I do have Art Text 2 which might be a better option in this case, I just prefer using Pixelmator and thought it might be able to do it since Paint Shop Pro can (and that is a bitmap drawing app). The easiest way, if you have power point (very popular program) use the Text effects>,transform. Very easy! Then you can save the text as picture to choose the type that you like better from , jpg, png, gif, bmp, tif Source.
