Glows

As you saw earlier, you can use the Layer, Effects menu to put a glow, or in this case an outline, around your type. You can also apply an inner glow to make it appear as if the letters themselves are glowing. This is a great effect to add emphasis around a piece of text or to make it stand out from a busy background. Figure 17.18 shows a fairly ordinary text and photo combination. (It's a title for a slide show.)

Figure 17.18. The letters don't quite stand out enough.
