Hi, I have this logo as a PNG:

I would like to create a stroke around it, and then lose the interior, so that it will be just an outline. Can't figure out how to do it.

If Pixelmator isn't my jam, can someone recommend an alternative solution?

Thanks!

Hello ddcp!

If your logo is white with transparency around then you can load the logo as a selection by holding the cmd-key and clicking on the thumbnail of the corresponding layer in the layers palete. Now you have your selection you can create a new blank layer and select it. Next up is using stroke from the edit menu to create your stroke. Simply hide the original layer with the logo and you should be good to go.
