Don't rasterize that text use layer styles for special effects and keep your text editable

Added on Thursday 26th of November 2009 01:51 am EST
 

Application:

Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3/CS4

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows

 

Is there a way to stroke text but keep the text editable? When I select a text layer, the Stroke command is grayed out. Do I need to rasterize the text first?

 

While it’s true that the Stroke command only works on a rasterized layer, you don’t need to rasterize a text layer to add a stroke to it. There is another way to do this task: simply add a Stroke layer style.

 

To apply a Stroke layer style to a text layer:

1.       Select the text layer, as shown in Figure A.
