I followed this process to outline text in PSE12
Type the text. With the text layer highlighted in the Layers Panel, open the Effects Palette, click on the third icon from the left (Styles), choose Stroke from the catagory dropdown and double-click on the stroke you want to apply to the text. After you apply the stroke as a style, a little "fx" will appear on the right side of the layer. Double-click on it to bring up the Styles Setting dialog where you can make changes to the stroke you've applied..
It appears to look ok but can't get rid of the wand highlighting, similar to marching ants
how to get rid of that or is there an easier way to do this
