    ok i can make a circle make it a path and type on this path. the tex goes
    from left to right which is correct . here is my problem i dont want to to
    go clock wise i want it to go counter clockwise how do i do this?maybe this
    will help to explain the issue
    the text i am talking about goes around the button
    the top text was text on a circle path. the text on the bottom was warped in
    a -100 bend it doesnt fit the contur exactly like a tpye text on path would
    do. hope this explains the issue a bit more.

    Step 1: Quit Photoshop. It is the wrong tool for the job.
    Step 2: Launch Illustrator.
    Step 3: Draw a circle in Illustrator with the Ellipse tool.
    Step 4: Set your type on the circle with the Text On Path tool.
    Step 5: Drag the text to the orientation you want with the Selection tool.

    Then you can bring the Illustrator file into Photoshop.
