    Banded Text

    Gregory BN Level 1

      Hello folks. I am trying to do what I thought might be a simple task. I have a 500 x 500 FW graphic with a transparent background. The only thing in it is a single word of text, five characters long, using Franklin Gothic Heavy, size 77. What I want to do is to create a black band across the lower third of these characters, at an equal height across all five letters, but with no black between the characters. It will be saved as PNG8, and the canvas will be trimmed to fit.

       

      Can somebody recommend a good way to do this?

       

      Thanks,
