Outlining text (stroke)

Recommended Posts

There's a feature in photoshop that I used all the time, and I cannot find an equivalent in PDN.

I would add a "stroke" to a text layer, which would outline (with varying degrees of transparency) the text only with whichever color or texture I selected.

Mostly, I am concerned with color. I want to be able to have white text that is outlined in black (most often) so that it pops from the rest. The outline function is not doing this to a satisfying result.

How can I make this happen?

Thanks for your help.

I'm having trouble locating one. I found one that let's me do an outline and a bevel and a feather. But it's still not doing quite what I want. Is there a way to "expand" the selection slightly? This would allow it to do what I want.

Thanks for your continued assistance.

If you have those effects, then it is my plugin pack that you have installed. That's good.

Here's what you need to do:

1) Add a new layer

2) Type your text on this new layer

3) Run Effects > Object > Outline Object...
