Bob Hawkins Posted September 19, 2009 Share Posted September 19, 2009 I have read much on outlining text, but remain confused. The most used plug in appears to be pyrochild's Outline Object. I have also downloaded Outline from BoltBait. I cannot get either to work to my satisfaction: I wish to outline red type with white over my photo montage. I have added a new layer into which I have typed my text in red. Whatever Primary and Secondary colours are set, Outline Object gives me white text with a cyan surround. I do see, however, that when I use the tool on a new canvas on its own, that the red text becomes white with a red surround. Neither has given me what result I aim for. BoltBait appears to create a surround of horizontal lines the same colour as the text. I don't doubt I am the one at fault; so I should be grateful if someone would kindly take the time to take me step by step through the process to achieve the result I seek. I have just seen at http://I have a virus on my system!/Fea ... ne_Object/ a different dialog box displayed to that which presented itself previously. Using this download, I have been able to obtain the perfect result immediately. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
