Default Re: PS: Outlined Text

Joba, there is a way to achieve *almost* the same effect in PSE by putting your stroke on a separate layer, then "hiding" the text layer, so you just have the outline -

1. Type out your text
2. Add a new, blank layer
3. Ctrl+click on the text thumbnail in the layers palette (to get the marching ants)
4. Select your blank layer
5. Go to Edit>Stroke and apply your stroke to the Outside
6. Click the eye icon next to your Text Layer to hide it
7. You should be left with just the stroke outline on your text
