Text with outer glow appears "in the fog"

Recommended Posts

Working on a poster style design.

Applied text to design. It shows up fine with a stroke, but... I want to apply an outer glow to the text and omit the stroke.

Text that is  not connected to the artistic design looks great -- the other text near design layers appears as if it's in a fog, like it would if it's behind a 50% white layer.

I have triple checked the layering and opacity. Text is out front of every other layer and 100%.

Any ideas??
