In this tutorial I’ll show you how to wave text but keep the top and bottom straight rather than having the entire design wave. I did a previous tutorial on how to wave text and I got a lot of questions about this particular feature (keeping the top and bottom straight) so I wanted to make this tutorial to answer that specific question.

In the previous tutorial everything was done in photopea, which is a free online photo editor. For this tutorial we’ll still use photopea to wave the text, however, your design will have to be created in a different program. You can really use any program you want to create the design. The only requirement is that you MUST be able to download your design as a PNG with a transparent background. This is SUPER important. I like to use Canva Pro to do this. If you don’t have Canva Pro just click this link to try it out for free.
The video tutorial above shows exactly how to create the easy wave text design in Canva and download it with a transparent background. Once you have the design created and downloaded you can then upload it to Photopea and wave the text just like before. The steps are just a little different. Instead of creating the design in Photopea you’ll select “open from computer” and then import your design. Then click on “edit”, “transform” and “warp”. You can then choose your “style” and you can wave it in so many different styles.

This will let you do all the different trendy retro looks that everyone is wanting right now. Remember, photopea is totally free to use but you’ll have to put up with the ads on the side. Or you can upgrade to a paid version if you’d like. Also, Canva is free to use but you cannot download with a transparent background in the free version.
