Where can I find a graphic like this?

[dir.yahoo.com...]

I want to find a graphic similar to the "new" but that says "hot" or "featured" etc.

I need it to look the same as the "new" used at yahoo, just with different words, and perhaps color.

Hi there and welcome to webmasterworld!

You can do this very easily in a program like photoshop (or similar). In PS just pick the font you want (so you'll need to find the right one first, thats the hard part) and right click on the layer where you have your text, click on blending options and tick stroke. You can change the colour and thickness of the stroke from the stroke menu.

matbastian, thank you very much :)!

Copying the style used for the "new" here exactly:
[dir.yahoo.com...]

I need a "Hot", "Featured", "Important", "Cool", "Cured", "Fully Recovered", and "Full Recovery"

For colors:
The yellow used apparently makes the text very easy to read, but it might be confusing to have 2 different words in the same color.

For "Hot", I'm thinking a lively color
"Featured", a lively color
"Important", a lively color
"Cool", ice blue?
"Cured", light green?
"Fully recovered/Fully recovery", dunno know

All the Best,

Taylor

Pretty generous Matt.
Are you in love?
Had a good time last night?
Did you get a new job?
Just had a baby?

Not to diminish what you did, but I think it's better if byepolar learns how do to it himself/herself. That's what WW is so good at.
More people benefit when you lay down a tutorial, elevating a thread like this to a resource, instead of fading like graffiti.

How does that saying go?

Yeah, I figured after I did that, it would go over about as well as strawberry flavored spam.

It may or may not have worked for him anyway. edit_g did all the teaching the man would need I think.

strawberry flavored spam

Egads... I ought to ban you from the gfx forum just for putting an idea like that into the universe! hehehe.

But I think you could:

1. Find a very simple font you like
2. Turn OFF anti-aliasing
3. Type it out in a small enough point size that it displays 1px wide strokes
4. Select all the text with the magic wand
5. Then expand your selection by one pixel
6. And fill a layer underneath the text with the 'halo' color you want...

...that should have the same effect, I think. But I could very well be making that much more complicated than it needs to be. I'm good at that.

How did you do it, mat?

If you have layer effects or layer styles in your photoshop version(I believe it started with 5.5) you can find the font then just add outer glow to the amount and color you desire.
