Circular numbering - but numbers pointing into circle

Go to solution Solved by Djisves,

Recommended Posts

Hi All. I am a total beginner so please be gentle! I am trying to space numbers around a circle but need the numbers to point into the centre. I have tried both text circle addons, but cannot get the numbers to point inward as example below.


Is there a way to do this?

Hello @gwefisher and Welcome :)


I think a member @MJW may have some thoughts on how to do this, as he did here on his clock.  It had something to do with using The Plugin Polar Transformation.


EDIT:  There is also a Clock Plugin:

On a New Layer, position your numbers near the bottom of a square canvas.

Using the Move Selected Pixels tool, selection stretch them to be taller, then apply Polar Transformation.

You'll then need to position each number individually using the Move Selected Pixels tool.
