One way you can enhance your text is by adding an outer glow to the text. So let’s begin by zooming up on our text a little bit.
I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to double click in the layer with the text that I want to add the outer glow to. And I’m going to get my layer style dialog box. I’m going to go ahead and move this underneath my title so I can see the changes being made. Go ahead and click on the outer glow to go ahead and select it. And here, you can choose the blend mode that you want to use. You could choose the opacity. The darker you make it, the more outer glow you’re going to have, the higher the number—the darker the outer glow. You can increase the noise if you’d like, so you can have a bit of a noise of an outer glow and you can see that just radiating around the preview. You could also change the color if you’d like to have a different kind of glow and you could see as we make this darker, it’s a little bit easier to see.
Let’s stick with the yellow, a little bit darker than before. We’re going to decrease the noise a little bit to make it a little more smooth, lighten it up just a little bit. You could choose to make it softer or more precise, and then you can choose based on that to increase your spread if you’d like and increase the size of the glow if you’d like. You could change the contour if you’d like. And as you click on these, you’re going to get previews of how they look, like that one. And you can change that range of that contour if you’d like. You could also just choose to change the jitter if you’d like. So here’s how you create a rather dramatic outer glow. Of course, you can change these and you could create a softer glow for your other text elements.
