    In photoshop, if you write like one long bit of text, is there any way you can add a border just around the text that I highlight? I know you can change the color, but is there any way to add borders?

    In fact, can you add borders to text at all?!?!?!? Remember, I'm using Photoshop 7.0.

    Thanks in advance, will7.

    Make the text the active layer within the layers palette, (by clicking on it) then select the bottom left button that looks something like the Macromedia Fireworks logo. This'll bring up a range of layer styles, select 'stroke' from the bottom.

    ...I'm assuming in place of border you really mean stroke.

    If you really did mean create a border, make a new layer above the text. Then use the Square Marquee and make a selection around the text and do Edit > Stroke.


    There really isn't much of a noticable difference through version 6.0 of Photoshop to the latest CS unless you're highly versed with everything... palletes, menus, methods mostly remain the same so it shouldn't matter.
