Task 2 How to Build a Glow Effect with Stroke Path

You can add an effect around a featured object that looks like a glowing halo that softly fades into the background. In addition to having aesthetic appeal, the effect described in this task works well when you're silhouetting an object against a white or dark background. It also works to separate the object from its background.

1. Open the File and Draw a Path

Select File, Open and select the file you want to modify. Select the Pen tool from the toolbox and select the Paths option in the Options bar. Use the techniques described in Part 9, “Using Paths,” to draw a path around the desired object.
