Shadow

The shadow effect adds depth and dimension to your text by creating a shadow behind it. You can customize the following aspects of the shadow effect:

  • Offset: Adjust the distance between the text and its shadow to make it look more pronounced or subtle.
  • Direction: Change the angle of the shadow to match the light source in your design.
  • Blur: Control the sharpness of the shadow edges, making it either crisp or soft.
  • Transparency: Set the opacity of the shadow to make it more or less visible.
  • Shadow Color: Choose any color for your shadow to complement your design.

Outline

The outline effect converts your text into a hollow outline, leaving the inside of the text transparent. Customize the outline effect with these options:

  • Thickness: Adjust the width of the outline to make it thicker or thinner.
  • Color: Select any color for the outline to match your design's theme.

Glow

The glow effect creates a radiant aura around your text, making it appear to glow. Customize the glow effect with these options:

  • Intensity: Control how strong the glow effect is, making it either subtle or bold.
  • Glow Color: Choose a color for the glow to match or contrast with your text color.

Offset

Similar to the shadow effect, the offset effect creates a layered look by offsetting the text. Customize the offset effect with these options:

  • Offset: Adjust the distance between the original text and the offset text.
  • Direction: Change the angle of the offset to achieve the desired layered look.
  • Blur: Control the sharpness of the shadow edges, making it either crisp or soft.
  • Transparency: Set the opacity of the shadow to make it more or less visible.
  • Shadow Color: Select a color for the offset text to enhance your design.

Repeat

The repeat effect creates multiple instances of your text in a specified direction, giving it a dynamic and patterned appearance. Customize the repeat effect with these options:

  • Offset: Adjust the distance between each repeated instance of the text.
  • Direction: Set the angle at which the text is repeated to create various patterns.
  • Offset Color: Choose a color for the repeated text to create a cohesive or contrasting look.
