Default How to: Outline a Text and Add a Gradient on Sumo Paint

Sumo Paint is a online free image editor. You don't have to sign-up on anything and you don't have to download anything.
The website is http://www.sumopaint.com/home/

Here are the steps you will have to follow before adding your effect:

1. Click on the "Open Sumo Paint And Start Fooling Around" button
It should look like this: Click the image to open in full size.

2. The background will be white. So to get it transparent, you add a new layer by clicking this button Click the image to open in full size. and a new transparent layer should appear.

3. Now, you should delete the white layer. So on the layer section at the bottom click back on the white layer and then click on the garbage can to delete it.
Click the image to open in full size.
4. Now that you have a transparent layer, click on the text button on your left Click the image to open in full size.

5. Click anywhere on the canvas and start typing your text. Don't forget to specify your font, the size of your font and the color of your font.
Click the image to open in full size.

6. Now you crop it because if you crop it at the end the effect you added will not show. So click this button Click the image to open in full size. and draw a rectangle around your text like this: Click the image to open in full size.

7. Now go on the Image tab and click on crop.
Click the image to open in full size.

How to add an outline to your text:
Follow the steps 1 to 7 before beginning.

8. Go on the Layer tab and click Layer effect and then Stroke.
Click the image to open in full size.

9. Now specify the opacity, the size and the stroke colour. I would leave the stroke position to outer and press OK when you're finish.
Click the image to open in full size.

10. Your text should now look like something like this.
Click the image to open in full size.
Now all that's left to do is to save your text.

How to add a gradient to your text:
Follow the steps 1 to 7 before beginning.

11. Go on the Layer tab and then click on Layer effect and then Gradient Bevel.
Click the image to open in full size.

12. Now something like this should appear. I suggest you leave everything like this except the angle. You may modify the angle to make it as you would like it to.
Click the image to open in full size.

13. To modify the colors of your gradient click on the little arrow next the gradient. And something like this should appear.
Click the image to open in full size.

14. To modify the colors click on the little box right beneath the gradient and click on it. Then click on the rectangle next to stop alpha and modify the colour. When you're done click on OK. It should look like this.
Click the image to open in full size.

15. Now that you're done modyfing your colors, you may want to add a new color to your gradient. To add a color to your gradient click somewhere on the gradient and a new box should appear and you can modify the colour.
Click the image to open in full size.

16. You can also choose preset gradients that or on your left or for more you can click on the little arrow at the bottom.
Click the image to open in full size.

17.
When you're finish, it should look like something like that. And all you have to do is save.
Click the image to open in full size.

I hope my guide wasn't too confusing.
