    Hi Jay,

    I think you mean you want to get the text to follow the path. If so you need the 'Type on a Path' text tool.

    - Create half the heart (imagine a mirror down the middle)
    - Duplicate the half and flip it
    - Line up the two halves and go to the pathfinder palette and merge them together.

    - Create a small copy inside the main heart.
    - Click and hold on the text tool in the tool palette and select the type on path tool.
    - With that you can click on the path and type, it will follow the path!
    - Make the stroke invisible.

    Hope that helps!

    I think he just need a vector heart and names inside it. You may use any vector heart from this page http://www.webresourcesdepot.com/15-...alentines-day/ and write the names using text tool.

    Also, (if this hasn't worked for you) the pen tool is awesome in Photoshop CS5. You can get a free trial of it for a month at adobe.com. If you haven't already tried this, you might consider it. There are a huge amount of tutorials for Photoshop on youtube. If you need any help otherwise feel free to post again!

    I got lucky and while I was back at college doing programming I had the chance to pick up CS4 Masters Collection (then the current edition) for $675 Canadian... gotta love the student pricing, (even though I was 56 at the time - I am a perennial student...)
