I am a photoshop newbie, I am trying to add some transparent background for my text in order to make it more readable, but I don't know, how to create simple semi-transparent background with glowing edges (or how it is called).
Here is an example what I am trying to achieve.
So the idea is to create something like a smoke cloud, and place it as a background for a text layer to make it readable.
How can I get the desired result. I am interested how to create any shape and make it look like that so I could create background for any element.
Thanks. I would be grateful for any help.
