- [Voiceover] One of my favorite things about…Photoshop CC 2015…is that it allows you to double up layer effects,…by which I mean you can assign multiple strokes,…and drop shadows, and other layer effects to a single layer.…This text, for example, is the result…of three strokes and three drop shadows working together.…I'm gonna go ahead and switch over…to this version of the image,…that contains this blue type with a Gradient Overlay effect.…Hard to see the letters, though,…because they're colored so similarly to the background.…Which is why I'm gonna start things off by adding a stroke,…which I can do by clicking on the FX icon…at the bottom of the Layers panel…and choosing Stroke, like so.…
And then, I'll click on the color swatch…and I'm gonna dial in a Hue value of 210 degrees,…I'm gonna set the Saturation to 100%,…and I'll take the Brightness up to 50%…to create this medium shade of blue.…Then, I'll click OK.…I'll change the Size value to 20 pixels,…we want Position to be Inside,…and I'm gonna change the Blend Mode to Multiply…
