How to Create an Outline Text Effect in Photoshop CS3
In this tutorial, I'm going to show you a quick way how to create an outline text effect. So you will need a new blank canvas, any size you want. If you’d like to have a background color, that’s fine. I got just a basic canvas here.
So first thing I'm going to do is create my text. I'm going to select my text tool from the toolbox, and you could choose any font that you’d like and any size that you like. You could do any other, you could change the color, you could change the alignment, anything else you want and click in your document and then go ahead and type your text and then you can move it you’d like.
Okay, so we have our text now. We’re going to make it an outline. So go ahead and double click in your layers palate on the layer with the text and that will open up your layer style dialog box. In these general blending options, we want to go down towards this fill opacity and you’re going to change that to zero and that’s basically going to get rid of all the color inside of your lines.
Then we’re going to make sure that we have a stroke, click on stroke and you can make this stroke any size that you want, make it at least two to three so you have an outline. I'm going to go ahead and make it a little bit thicker and do four and you can leave all these settings the same. You can change them if you’d like to get a different look. Make sure that the field type says color for your stroke and then click on the color well and choose a color that you’d like to have as your outline. Click on OK, click on OK again and then you would be taken back to your canvas and now you have an outline text effect.
