Text box background

Recommended Posts

Many times when I am labeling a photo the only way to get text that is easy to read is to draw a box filled in with white and then put the text over the top of it. The ability to draw a text box that fills in the background automatically and lets me start to type immediately (with only the background immediately behind my text being filled in with the solid cover) would save many steps.

Alternatively, you could use the Outline Object tool on your text layer (I think Outline Object comes from a plugin pack but I don't remember what... search for it in the Plugins forum, you'll probably find it. Try BoltBaits effects pack). Using a color that's easily distinguisable from the text makes it more visible. For instance:


When outlined with white.
