How Do You Make Your Text Glow on
Create glowing text in a free image editor to decorate pages. (Jupiterimages/ Images)

The editor is an online image editor. It allows you to create images from scratch and edit graphics you've retrieved from your computer, photo library or website. You can apply a variety of effects to graphics and text on the canvas, such as an inner or outer glow. When you add text to your graphics, Pixlr automatically places it on a separate layer, allowing you to customise its appearance without editing other parts of the image.
