How to give a text an edge

Recommended Posts

There are a number of ways that you can do this but first:

You must have the text on a layer of its own or it will not work. So if you have blue text on a white background you can use Grim Colour Reaper plugin or Clear Background plugin to get rid of it or you can select the background with the magic wand & delete it. Easier to start with the text on a new layer. Also creating the image 4x larger than what you want the end result to be will make it look smoother.

1. Use pyrochild's Outline Object plugin

2. Use Drop Shadow

There are other ways too but these are the easiest to do. Let me know how it works out, please?


Knowledge is no burden to carry.
