Can somebody please point me towards a free tutorial that explains how to create a "coil" of text around an image in Fireworks 8.
I am also wondering how I can have a text skewed and attached to a path (to give it a somehow semicircle-big front small back appearance!)
Any help is very much appreciated.
You need to create a path that coils around the image and attach the text to the path. Use the Skew tol (press and hold on the Scale tool to find it) to distort the text so it is larger in the front than in the back of the ellipse.
