I wouldn't use outline I would personally use this method:

1) install this plugin;

2) type your text in white (or whatever colour you desire);

3) duplicate layer;

4) on the bottom duplicate layer use the above plugin with a few pixels of blur, colour black (or whatever colour you wish) and untick the 'Keep original image' box, X=0 and Y=0, click OK;

5) duplicate this shadow layer as many times as you want to create a solid outline, then merge all these down into one.

This is only a suggestion and maybe Ash's way is better, but this is how I do outlined text.

You can also duplicate the layer, go to the lower duplicate, change the color of the font to black, then gausian blur it slightly, and merge the upper white font down on it... this will give you a softer outline than the drop shadow outline.

btw... there are some tuts that have these methods mentioned :roll: :wink:

the way i do it is i duplicate the text layer then mess with the contrast/brightness to make the bottom one black then apply a gausion blur to it. After that all you have to do is duplicate and merge thew bottom layer over and over again untill it's dark enough ;)

so instead of doing all this mumbo jumbo, make a layer write what you want in the color you want, then make a new layer and put it underneath the 1st layer in black of the font(write the same thing) and move it slightly down & to the right....
