Since I'm not able to create a text path in Elements I'm looking for templates to help me do so. I have several that allow me to type in shapes, lines, etc. but I am mainly interested in ones that can help me change the direction of the text.

I guess I'm looking for something so I could type in a half circle below a picture but have the words still the right direction and not upside down. Clear as mud?

Thanks for any help!

I have a couple sets. Not sure it's what you want, but take a look.

Thanks those are all great! I'm looking for one that has the text go the opposite direction. This isn't what I want it for but it would be like writing along the smile of a smiley face but have the text not upside down or backwards. Thanks!

There is a way in PSE to curve your text like that. After you type, look for an icon that looks like a T with a curve under it, choose Arc and play with the settings.

Have you tried to flip it over??

which way? Since I can only trace a circle template if I flip horizontal it'll be backwards; and to flip it vertically will cause it to curve downward instead of up.

I do really love the ones that have posted though and will be getting several of them to help me out :)
