What Is Word Art ?

Word Art Defined ... and Expanded

Word art is a term originally given to stylized text used in Microsoft products. On a more general note, word art refers to a technique for making unique graphics from text using fonts and various graphic filters, warps, shadows, textures or outlines. Word art is also used as the description of any text that has been arranged by a designer to create an appealing pattern or layout that enhances its meaning. Word art banners or headers are popular digital design elements in scrapbooking, cardmaking and desktop publishing programs.

Word art is artistically manipulated text or fonts with special effects added. Designers, graphic artists, sign makers and artists love to create visual elements that convey a message as powerful as the words themselves. Sometimes a special font can do the trick, other times a phrase needs some artistic manipulation to illustrate a mood or make a statement. Word art takes fonts to new levels ... artful arrangement of the text in a quote creates a beautiful word picture. Word art can be powerful or subtle - when you have the right font combined with special effects and colors your words become a work of art - Word Art.

DIY Word Art Graphics with Photoshop Elements - Creative graphic arts image editing studio software you'll love

I love to design word art graphics. I use several different software tools to create my logos and quote graphics including Photoshop, but Photoshop can be hard to learn and tough on the pocketbook. Photoshop Elements is far easier to learn than Photoshop, and you can use it to make your own very cool word art and clip art. Photoshop Elements costs far less than other graphic editing programs with similar features.

Photoshop Elements is available as a download or media product.

Word Art Defined

WordArt is a text-styling feature... available in the Microsoft Office suite of products. It allows users to create stylized text with various "special effects" such as textures, outlines, and many other manipulations that are not available through the standard font formatting. For example, one can create shadows, rotate, "bend" and "stretch" the shape of the text. " - Wikipedia
