How can I add an effect on a highlighted text, such as border and other stuff that can be found in Layer styles > Blending options?
I have this text right here: https://i.stack.imgur.com/zJgTM.png and I want to give the text below a white stroke around the word "SAMPLE", which currently I worked around by putting a layer mask on it, but when I want to modify the text, it can become hard and you have to readjust it.
But let's say it has like shine options around, and we don't want to overlap things that should not be overlapped.
For example, in this picture I highlighted the word "SAMPLE" because I only this part in the text should get a stroke effect around it.
Basically like this:
Here I also put a satin effect from layer styles.
But it wasn't that simple to make.
I had to do it with mask and if I should ever modify the text I have to redo the mask.
My question is, is there an easier way?
