Unfortunately, you cannot make Strokes with Pointy Corners in Photoshop using Layer Styles.
In this tutorial, I will teach you exactly what you need to do to apply sharp-edged strokes with pointy corners!
Convert Your Text Layer into a Vector Shape
With the Text tool, create any word with the font and size that you like.
For this tutorial, we will be using the word “Pointy.”
In the Layers panel, right-click on the text layer and select Convert to Shape from the drop-down menu.
By converting a text layer into shape, your text layer will no longer be editable. You must make any changes that you want to make before you convert the text layer into a vector shape.
Apply The Stroke to Your Vector Strokes with Pointy Corners in Photoshop
This is where the fun begins! To make strokes with pointy corners in Photoshop, press the A key on your keyboard to select the Direct Selection tool.
In the Options bar, select the color White for the Fill color.
Now, for the Stroke setting, change it into Black and set the Pixel size to 30px to set a bold contrast between the text and the stroke.
Click on the Stroke options drop-down menu and select the Solid stroke.
At the bottom left of the window, click on the Align drop-down menu and select the Stroke Outside option.
On the right side of the window, click on the Corners drop-down menu and select Miter.
The Miter option is the secret that will help you create that sharp-edged corner on each of your texts.
After selecting Miter you will see the pointy stroke corners!
To wrap it up, just click OK, and you’re done!
