    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

  • write around circle

    OK. i am sure there is a simple solution to this. i am trying to write text along the path of a closed circle. i can put the text on the inside or outside and i understand the starting and end points and center point and such. the thing i cant figure out how to do is write along the bottom of the circle with the text still in its proper verticle position. i dont want it upside down to to speak. is this possible with the text on path tool...or should i type out the text and ben/shape it. many thanks!

    I've always had to make two circles to do that. Get your top text set up, then create the second circle and click it at the bottom with the text path tool. Use the arrow tool to flip the text up and move the center point to where you want it to be.

          It will technically be on the inside of a circle. Make your second circle bigger so that it looks like it's on the outside of the circle the top text is on.

            Another way to do this is by using Baseline shift to movve the inside text "down" until it is on the outside of the circle.

              I'm not sure what application you're using but can you set the bottom text to align to the "ascender" instead of baseline?

              I've used the above mentioned method lately since I'm hard pressed to remember a non-rush-job (Do they exist? ) but I do remember one time I had a non-exact oval image that I was wrapping type around and I didn't want to expand one of the paths so I duplicated the path in place (I use "duplicate" as a generic statement here as I don't know what application I was in. It would be either InDesign or Illustrator though) and set the bottom text path to align to the ascender of the text.

                alingment

                once you have made a bigger circle (increase by font height) align on both vertical and horizontal axes
