I'm not too sure how to describe the effect that I'm going for or what it is even called. Thus, I'm having some trouble finding any help through Google.
I want to accomplish something like this "SLOPED" text below, but have the bottoms of the letters follow the slope as well instead of being horizontal.
I have tried using the free transform tool, skewing, and using perspective, but I don't like the effect they are resulting in. All of the tools that I just mentioned result in the appearance of the word being angled away from the viewer (perspective). I want more of this style effect, whereas the letters are not skewed horizontally, but scaled evenly along a path that I lay out.
What is the name of this text effect? Can anyone point me in the right direction to a tutorial or know how to accomplish this themselves?
I know that I could go through and do this letter by letter, but I was really hoping to find an easier method.
EDIT I have removed many elements of my design and quickly threw some sample text in it, but this should give you an idea of what I am trying to accomplish. I want a mixture of the above and below effects.
