    Hi all,

    I'm messing around with logo designs for a local nonprofit, and would like to distort/skew the text, but it seems that with Acorn and Pixelmator, one must rasterize the text before this is possible, leading to pixelation problems.

    Are there any apps out there besides Photoshop that will allow skewing text without rasterizing?

    For future reference, both Acorn and Pixelmator are raster graphics editors. Photoshop is also a raster graphics editor, but is a special case. citizenzen recommended Illustrator, the premier vector graphics editor. If the price of Illustrator is an issue, take heart. Virtually any vector graphics editor will do what you want.
