hey, to the person below easy, quick way to outline font is Stroke. I'm going to try and explain this...on your font your font using the Magic Selection Tool. select until all is included (pressing Shift when you click a new section will keep it together). Then go to Edit>Stroke (Outline). A new window will open w/ all the settings for colour and thickness. I hope this helps you.
