Ready? C'mon let's start to do this easy outlined text Wink


Step #1
First, you should fill your white page with a solid background, but remember to fill the background with perfect colors that doesn't have the same/almost the same color as the outline you're going to put.

Step #2
Now, create your text layer, pick a nice font and font color, and put something on your text editor to edit the text.

Step #3
Right click on your text layer on layer dockable dialog. Then click "Alpha to Selection".

Step #4
Then, after getting your text to selection, go to select>grow>3 pixels. Then you'll see there's a big outline.

Step #5
Create a new layer and name it "Text Outline".


Step #6
Change your fore ground color because it will be used for the text's outline. After you pick, fill the selection. The image will look like this:

Step #7
Click the layer "text" on the dockable dialog layer. Then, click the green arrow that points up.
