How can I get a stroke effect for text?

Recommended Posts

Open up http://searchpaint.net and look for "Outline Object." :-) The first link should get you what you're looking for.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Another method that I prefer to use is applying the Drop Shadow effect, with the X & Y offsets at 0, and adjusting the blur level - repeat 2 - 10 times depending on how much stroke/shadow/glow you want around the text. The latest update of the effect also allows you to add solid shadows of varying thickness (widening radius) - you can get border effects such as this...


Drop shadow is part of KrisVDM's effects package.
