Creating Curved Text with the Text Tool

While BeFunky doesn’t have a built-in feature for curved text, you can use our Text Tool to add your text and curve it around your canvas. Follow through this guide for some more information.

Step 1: Open your project in either Photo Editor, Collage Maker or Graphic Designer. This tutorial will work the same for each application.

Step 2: Go to the 'Text' tool, and click on 'Add Text'.

Step 3: To create your curved text, you'll need to add each letter one at a time. Once a letter is added, first move the selection area all the way over to only surround the letter itself.

Pro Tip:

Choose a 'font size' pixel amount that's easy to remember. As you make each letter, type that number into the Font Size input and make sure they're all consistent.

Step 5: Repeat this process for each letter until you have all of them added, then keep adjusting them.

Pro Tip:

If you have a few of the same letters in your phrase, use the 'Duplicate' button to make a clone of those quickly.

Step 7: When you have them all lined up how you'd like, save your project.
