      Blending and Layer Options

      Put a stroke of 1px on the layer you want to have the border.

        Thanks but how do I get to that? I'm looking everywhere but can't find that option.

          I do not know about elements vers, but in full photoshop you can select the layer, right click and load blending, then go to strike for example (or shadow or whatever which one you want) and set the values.

            Like Floris, don't know Elements either. Why not use the official PS? Anyways, that one was rhetorical.

            Select the Text Layer in your Layers List

            Then on the menu commands

            Layer > Layer Style > Stroke > Size - change to 1px > Color - change to 000000

            If 1 pixel isn't enough, use more on the Size

              As far as I am aware, there is no way to do this easily in Photoshop Elements. I am using 6.0 and it doesn't have this feature. You would have to create two layers. Your bottom layer is the black border. This should be a couple pixels larger than your actual text. Then you would place the white text layer on top of this to get the effect that you want.

              Photoshop Elements isn't meant to be a full-fledged image editor. It is designed to quickly and easily manipulate digital photos off of camaras. You can easily adjust skintones, remove redeye, correct color, light or darken photos and remove contrast.

              You could probably do this in GIMP so you don't have to pay the high price of Photoshop CS3 (I think its $549.00 to upgrade from Elements).

                I would wait with upgrading to Cs3, cs4 is around the corner now and a worthy upgrade.

                  Need some help finding a setting
                  by BenjMac
                  The text on my message centers is white (Inbox, Sent Items, New Folder, etc.) and very hard to see. I can't seem to find the setting to change this color. Any help in locating this setting would be appreciated....

                  Gzip, how to?
                  by DemOnstar
                  Compressing the following resources with gzip could reduce their transfer size by 354.3KiB (77% reduction).



                  How do I compress all of this for optimization? Does it all sit...
