Selecting a Logo and Adding a Border Around It
Hi.

I used select by color to select this STEELERS word logo from this image below:

Now I cut and pasted it to a youth flag football team pic in the corner. But because I captured some of the sky in the background, the yellow STEELERS logo kind of blended in at that point as seen here (I cropped out the team and am just showing the corner):

Is there a way to select this logo by color and at the same time maybe widen that selection by a few pixels to capture some of the black around the STEELERS logo so that when I transfer it to the team pic, it stands out more by essentially creating a border around it?

Another option is to put the text on it's own layer with a transparency background and apply a drop shadow. Below is for GIMP 2.6.11

Right click the Layer in the Layer dock > Layer Effects > Drop Shadow
