How do I make text with outlines?

Recommended Posts

Hello Qebafhzn.

For this, what we would do is to type out the text on a new layer, doing so in such a way that this is to be the fill to the text - if you want your fill to be blue, type the text in blue.

Next, for the outline, you could use either of the Outline Object plugins, the first of which by pyrochild, and the second by BoltBait (as part of his pack; pyrochild's plugin pack resides here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=21706).

Doing all this on its own layer eases the process, as both plugins require transparency around the object to be outlined - you can't very well do that with imagery around the text. Both plugins also allow you to choose the colouring of the outline within its dialog.
