Course 2


Lesson 12 - Outline Text Tutorial (pdf) (link to comment)

In this lesson, the written version is different than the video!  When I first wrote the lesson, PSE had a handy style that worked well.  Since the style is no longer available in later versions, the video covers how to do the same!

As we learned in the lessons in Course 1 on design principles, we often have a problem with our titles being too big an grabbing too much focal weight.  This technique is a great way to make a larger title without it being so bold to grab the visual weight.

It has been a while since I have watched my own video, but newer versions of PSE now have the stroke right in the styles. Nonetheless, this is a good video to watch to learn other skills.

Why not try a new font with this technique?  Remember that there a many links to free font sites on the resource page.

In the full version of Photoshop, to make the inside fill invisible, in the layer styles, change the fill opacity to zero.
