Access the rectangular marquee tool
Make a rectangular selection surrounding the area containing the text
Go to Edit>Stroke (Outline) selection. In the dialog, position the stroke inside, select the color, and select the width.
I tried to figure out but only options I could find - Styles on top. There is something called 'Drop Shadows' which adds shodow to two parts of each font. For more effects, you may also want to try Text Content in Editor.
thanks for the advice, I can see the stroke (outline) selection option - but its not highlighted for me to be able to select it??!!
ok. Try this;
- Open your picture file
- Duplicate the background layer
- Access the type tool and enter your text. The text will be on its own layer. Right click the text layer in the layers palette, and simplify the layer
- Drag out the rectangle with the marquee tool. You should see "marching ants"
- Apply the stroke
awsome thank you so much - it looks fab now!!
You're welcome. Glad to help.
