Add text element to Canva and make a copy of it

This effect is very easy to do. First you need to add a text element to the canvas in Canva. You can change the font, size and other settings very easily as I have explained in previous tutorials.

After that’s done you need to copy the text by clicking on it with your left mouse button + control C.
If you work on Mac this is command Z.

Hollow effect settings

Now paste the copy of the text on the canvas and select it. Now go to the Effects option in the menu and click on it.

Copy text and go to Effects settings

Over here you can select the Hollow option.

Now you can see that this text over here becomes hollow and the next thing we need to do is to add a color to this text.

Select Hollow Style

Therefore, click on the Color option and select any color you prefer.

After that you need to drag this copy back on top of the first text that we already had on the canvas.

Now you can see the colored outline glow effect is applied to the text.

Select color and drag text

You can also change the thickness of the outline by selecting the element. Then click on Effects. You can see over here that the hollow is selected.

Here you have the thickness option, so. You can use the slider and then you see the text. Correct text comes thicker or thinner.

Thickness settings

Now you know how to make a text outline color glow effect in Canva.
