Hello,

 

I'm using PSE 2020 in Windows 10. Is it possible to place an Outside Stroke to a shape without rounded or clipped outside corners? I'm attaching before and after images of my attempt to put an Outside Stroke on the shape of the letter "T". I don't want the clipped corners in the after image.

Yes just follow the same steps above by adding New blank layer below your T and then steps 3,4 and 5.

Yes it is but not with layer styles.

 

Here's one way:

 

1.  Ctrl click on the text layer thumbnail in the layers panel to get a selection of the T

 

2. Put a new blank layer below the text layer

 

3. Go to Edit>Fill Selection and fill with black

    (or whatever color you want the stroke)

4. Go to Select>Deselect

 

5. Go to Filter>Other>Minimum and set the desired "stroke"

Hi Jeff,

 

Thanks for your quick reply!

 

I do NOT have a "Text" layer. I just have a Shape of the letter "T". After selecting the shape, I used EDIT>STROKE (Outline) SELECTION...  A screenshot of my Editor is attached. Can I still add a Stroke without the clipped corners?

Hi Jeff,

 

THANKS! Your method works like a magic wand. And, it's really easy to do. Showing the History panel helped a lot the first time.
