    Hi everybody,

    Not sure if this is the best place to post this but... here it is.

    I making a website for somebody and she has a arty outline of a female that she wants the text to literary wrap around the outline. I have all the various file formats of the image you would expect and access to the majority of the adobe suite. Pic, http://flic.kr/p/dsmcmU

    What I am wondering is if anybody could suggest image format or technique for doing this? I'm not opposed to anyway way of doing it regardless of how elaborate it is.

    Any help would be great.

    It depends on what you mean by wrapping the text.

    This is one way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzdY7egKDA8 (and I think this is what you mean)

    and this is another - http://pshero.com/photoshop-tutorial...ound-an-object (probably not what you want but could be useful sometime)

    Thanks for the response, appreciate it.

    Yeah that's what I meant . I left out the big problem from my first post which is that its for a website. It still seems that this is the best way to go about it though.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply to my post.

    You're welcome. I'm curious, though - why is it a big problem that it is for a website?

    If you want to keep the text as text rather than place it in the image, you could use what's known as the "sandbag technique". Basically, you create divs that act as virtual sandbags to keep the text away from the parts of the image that you want to show rather than having the image display as a square.
    You can find a little more info here: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/sandbags/
    This article uses php but the same effect can be achieved using just HTML and a lot of patience.
