Using earlier selection, apply Stroke command. Set its color to white with width 2 px.
Soften it using Gaussian Blur. Add layer mask and then fill it with black. Paint some of the stroke line segment with white to reveal it back.
Below, you can see the difference after before and after adding custom highlight.
Step 74: Fixing Text
Currently, both texts come from the same Smart Object. This means that if we edit of the text, the other will automatically updated too. Try this by double clicking one of the text to edit its content.
You might find this dialog box, informing you to save to the same location. If you do find it, just click OK.
The text will be opened in a separate file. Change the text and then hit Ctrl + S to save it. If the text doesn’t fit the canvas, click Image > Reveal All to resize the canvas automatically.
As you can see in the screenshot, the text in both display is updated. Of course, we want each text to be unique.
Open up the First Digit group layer. Select its text layer and then duplicate it (Ctrl + J).
Place it on top of the layer and click its eye icon to make it invisible. From now on, if we want to edit the text, all we have to do is just double click this text layer without going through inside the group layer.
Open up the group layer in Second Digit and search for its text Smart Object. Right click and then select New Smart Object via Copy. Photoshop will create new duplicated Smart Object but not related to the original one. Replace the original text Smart Object with the new one.
We are now going to test the new Smart Object. Double clik the text we have just duplicated.
The text Smart Object is opened in new file window. Edit its text. Save and close the file.
As you can see here, the changes we made in this new Smart Object is independent from the first one.
Duplicate the Smart Object we have just made using shortcut Ctrl + J. Replace text on lower part of the display with this newly duplicated text.
Duplicate the second text layer and then put it on top of the layer stack. Click its eye icon to make it invisible.
Let’s do another test on the text. Double click the first text to edit its content.
Change the text.
Save and close the file.
