Outline a Font
Sometimes you want just the outline of your letters, especially on greeting cards. One word says it all!
In Photoshop type your word or words with a bold font like Cooper Std Blk.
Select your letters with the Magic Wand tool and Contiguous unchecked on the top toolbar so one click selects all the letters.
Click twice on your Text layer and the Layer Style dialog box will come up. Highlight the Stroke option, adjust the size of the stroke and click on the Color square to choose an outline color. Click the OKs.
With the Text still selected, slide the Fill to 0% on the Layers palette.
Deselect and you have just the outline.
