I want to create a shape (just a square), add an outer glow then remove the shape fill (and stroke) but keep only the outer glow. When I lower the opacity of my rectangle fill it lowers the outer glow as well. Is there a way around this? I tried creating an alpha matte layer but didn’t have much luck. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
if you are using layer styles for the outer glow, then the layer styles allwos for a 0% fill, ( see pic ) but if you want to use effects, I think duplicating the layer and putting it in silhouette is a quick fix. ( you could also parent it in case you change position or size afterwards )
