I had previously made a map with a nice out glow using bright blue with 75% saturation, 24 pts. It gave me the attached screen shot. Exactly like I wanted it!
But I am now trying to do the same thing with another map and using the same settings, it is just not happening. I would have attached the .ai file here but apparently I can't for some reason. SO let me know what settings I should check in my file to make this work? I am selecting a path and trying to apply the outer glow to that path.
Here is a screen shot of the map where I am trying to apply the outer glow. You can kind of see a very faint glow, but nothing like the one above!
I am relatively new to Illustrator.
Probably change the blend mode of the outer glow to normal?
No - I tried all those blend combinations!
Its too bad that I can't attached my .ai file for someone to take a look at.
Please upload your file to Dropbox or reaive CLoud and post a link.
Great idea - just did it
Thank you. Main issue with your file is that the object only has a stroke, but no fill. Apply a fill of white and then there will be your outer glow.
Yes! That was it. Thanks so much!
