    Text wrap why oh why wont it work, sigh!

      Hi I have watched tutorials on you tube and read instructions and no matter what I do, I cant get the stupid text to wrap around the stupid object lol.

       

      Here is what I am doing, tell me if I am a step wrong somewhere.

       

      I have a layer amongst many that has some text on it, not rasterised.

       

      On the same layer, I go file>place and put an image that has a transparent background.  Now from here there seems to be several ways of going about it.  One tutorial said once the image is placed, (I know above the text in the same layer), to send to back and then use the pen tool with no fill and no stroke but then I lost my path, sigh! It went on to say that I select my path and make it a compound path but the only way I could get that to work was use a fill layer with 50% opacity for my path and then once the path was complete, I couldnt select the bl**dy thing!

       

      Anyway I gave up on that tutorial.

       

      So I have the png image placed on top of the text and then go Object>Text Wrap>Make and still nada!
