Anyhow, I selected a font to be used, and asked if it was possible to make thinner.. She ended up putting a stroke around the letters so the font looks thinner.. I went to use the logo on a photograph, but because she used a white stroke, of course it shows, which isn't what I want.
Is it possible to make the stroke transparent? I've searched a bit and have read that you can make a stroke transparent by clicking the "none" box with the red line through it in the colour palette... When I click it however, it makes the stroke completely disappear, and blanks out the stroke number. If I try selecting the box with the red line first, then putting in a stroke number, It just makes the stroke a normal white.
I know this is long winded.. Any ideas at all? Is it even possible to make a stroke transparent?
Does the typeface that the logo written in have more weights? Finding a medium, regular, light or thin font would be a better option. Butchering a fonts weight by adding a border is going to make the letterforms irregular and disproportionate. It's the designers role to do a proper job - and the way it's been done now is very crude, to be honest.
However you can do what you describe: choose object > path > outline-stroke - then delete the extraneous paths.
