Just downloaded, text question


Recommended Posts

It isn't a dumb question.

1. Type text in a new layer

2. Duplicate that layer

3. On the bottom text layer, use the outline effect at your desired pixel thickness and intensity

4. Use the Hue/Saturation adjustment to customize the color

4. If that layer ends up with a white background, use the magic wand at 0 tolerance to select it (Shift+Click it) and delete it (Delete key).

5. [Optional] Download and install Boltbait's Feather plugin (see the topic), restart Paint.NET, and smooth the letters out using the effect (in Effects>Blur menu)

If I'm going a little too fast for you, I can elaborate on the steps.

I was hoping there was just a button for this like on PS...

I tried doing what you said, and because I'm not very bright apparently I couldn't make it work.

BoltBait is (supposed to be) working on a more advanced text plugin for stuff like this...

If you've got PhotoShop, use that instead.

Actually, I think there's an easier way.

Download the Drop Shadow plugin. Make a new layer and type your text in that.

Use Drop Shadow. Set the X and Y at 0. Use a blur radius of 1. Press Ctrl + F repeatedly.

There ya go!

I think I'll turn this into a Tutorial...
