There is a free Open Source tool AutoTrace which is able to perform a centerline trace of a line-art bitmap.
Run AutoTrace with at least the following options:
autotrace -centerline -color-count 2 -output-file output.svg -output-format SVG input.png
We can then fine tune the strokes and add the desired stroke strength..
We may also ...

To revert to the legacy transform behavior, do the following:
Use Notepad (Windows) or a text editor on Mac OS to create a plain
text file (.txt). Type the text below in the text file:
Save the file as PSUserConfig.txt to your Photoshop settings folder:
Draw a rounded rectangle on the grid.
Select the rectangle.
Set up the Skew Transform in the Transform panel, with the horizontal scew set to -60, and the vertical set to -30.
Apply the transform.
Reposition the shape to snap to the grid.
Note: after the transform, the height of the rectangle appears to double as it becomes stretched. So if you create your ...
Quite honestly... grab the pen tool and manually trace the paths. It'll result in the best output.
Auto-tracing is often not the best option. When you only want paths you can stroke, auto-trace generally fails miserably.
Select your object
Click Effect - Distort & Transform - Free Distort.
Click and hold point to drag object into desired shape.
Click OK to implement your modification
Click Object - Expand Appearance
That's it, your done.Your Object is ready for standard editing.
Add an Envelope Mesh.
Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh and choose 1 row and 1 column and click OK.
Then you can distort the envelope (which contains the raster image).
Alternatively, for simpler and symmetric perspective distorts you can use Make with Warp and select any warp. If you then adjust Bend to 0 %, you can use the Horizontal and ...
You can transform a object from normal view into isometric in the transform palette with the matrix operation in one go. The benefit of this approach is that you can undo it later, to make edits to your object and transform it back.
What you do is:
expand the transom palette shift+ctrl+M
Go to the matrix subtab and
Enable edit current matrix
Type in the ...
From where you are now you can just make a circular guide.
draw a circle with a size that will be the new starting point for your lines;
make it a guide (View > Guides > Make Guides or CMD+5 / CTRL+5 for Windows);
select the anchors (the ones near the center) using the Lasso tool (Q), for example
with smart guides enabled, scale your lines (S) and drag ...
Use a step blend instead.
Create a star with a stroke and no fill, then do Object > Transform > Scale. Make sure to uncheck "Scale Strokes and Effects", increase the scale as required, then hit Copy to create a larger star.
Select both stars, and do Object > Blend > Make
Do Object > Blend > Blend Options. Choose "Specified Steps". Apply the number of steps ...
Illustrator can do center line tracing much like autotrace. Its not super useful for most things but in this case the image is highly synthetic and it might work.
Yor source image is notoriously bad so theres no real way to try this without losing quality, your originals should be better (no need to be so zoomed)
In trace settings disable fills ...
Node snapping will help. Enable the following from the node snapping toolbar:
Enable snapping %, the first button in the toolbar.
Snap nodes, paths and handles (important!)
Snap to paths
Snap cusp nodes
Snap smooth nodes
Snap other points...
Snap an item's rotation center (important!)
Some of the above snapping options may be unneeded, and depend on your ...
I did it in the following way:
Type any text lowering the letter size after every letter (I dont aware about any other way to do that) -
Expand and ungroup,
That's what I got -
Another options is -
Third options -
I'm unaware of an automated way to keep the type perpendicular to the page and have it slope the way you are depicting. It must be done manually.
@Ilan has laid out the primary automated options there are.
There is one more option though, Type on a path with the varied type sizes.
I simply set the type on a straight horizontal path and used Type > Type ...
I just fully describe what I did to achieve something similar. You need to see which steps you can skip or need to adapt.
Create a rectangle.
Use Extensions → Render → Function Plotter with these settings.
Duplicte the result and shift it horizontally as desired.
Path → Combine (you can also add your orange lines here).
Create your ι.
The best workaround I found:
Set font size up to maximum 1296 pt
Select text object
Go to Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform...
Check Preview box
Scale up text object as you need
Now you can scale up text object to any size and keep it fully editable while font size is still 1296 pt. That's a good news, but the problem is that the text object it-...
I don't believe there is a way to transform a pattern overlay as a layer style (I may be wrong), but what you can do is use the "Create Layers" command to convert the pattern to a reguler image layer and transform the pattern from there.
Simply right-click the effect in the layers panel (or go to Layer → Layer Style) and choose "Create Layer[s]":
You can ...
Start the Perspective tool . Set the tool to "Corrective (Backward) directiion" mode in the Tool options dialog. Drag the markers in the four corners of the image to the four corners of the painting, hit "Transform" in the side dialog.
See the "Clipping" options for what to do with the surroundings of the image.
You may have to scale the image (on X or Y ...
You obviously drew a rounded rectangle, applied -30 degrees vertical skew and then it didn't fit.
The clou is to have right dimensions before skewing:
The black rectangle has width = 3 grid horizontal diagonals. For testing other things in the same image there's also equally wide red rectangle with sharp corners. Those other things:
removing the rounding ...
Photoshop doesn't remember arbitrary rotations of objects. However, there is one rather cumbersome way you could do it.
Select and highlight the text with the text tool
Copy the text CTRL+C
Select the move tool V
Select the text tool T again
Click on the image to make a new text layer
Paste the text CTRL+V. Note: for Macs use Command instead of CTRL
If you have a selection, it will scale only the selection. You have to use the Scaling tool (Shift + S + <click> on image), not the "Scale Layer" menu.
If you want to use Scale Layer for some reason, convert your selection to a "floating selection" (which is more or less a "modal, temporary layer") first, by pressing <...
