Is there a tool to create a stroke? Thanks
Hi @ABlueWhale, what do you exactly mean with “a stroke”? Do you mean something like a bezier curve? You can use the Curve tool to do that (
If you want kind of a round-about-way, you can duplicate a layer four times (make sure it is the color of the stroke you want) and move each layer 1 px up, down, left, and right, then flatten. Not a single-button-fix, but handy.
Personally, I use Edit > FX > Convolution Matrix > outline-transparent-layer-(cross) to make a simple, 1px thick border, although (as far as I know) it only affects one layer and one frame at a time. Still, it’s much faster than doing it by hand!
- You can also select the whole sprite area (e.g. with Select > Color Range option) or the magic wand tool (
- Then use Select > Modify > Expand with 1px
- Then Select > Modify > Border to select the 1px stroke area
- Finally paint the stroke using the Paint Bucket (
Gkey) with Tolerance = 255 and Contiguous option unchecked)
