I am trying to create an image that has a circle with wording over it.
The color of the circle is very important because it is centered off of the canvas in order to create a rounded edge for a rectangle when placed next to this rectangle on our website. Therefore they have to be the same color.
The problem is, whenever I try to put the desired effects onto the wording (i.e., Drop Shadow, Guassian Blur - in light colors like white and gray) it lightens up the color of the circle except for the edge of the circle. The color code stays the same.
So, when I add it to the rectangle on our website it is a slightly different color than the rectangle on our website.
I have tried everything I can think of - including making the wording a separate image and important the GIF - it still does it.
Does anyone know a fix for this?
Oh, and I am using version CS3.
Can you post a link to the PNG file?
