How do I make a text border or also called "stroke" around text in documents that have text such as Pages, Markup, etc?

I want white text with a black border or "stroke", what program can I use in macOS to accomplish this?

And how would I do it?

It looks like this, for example:

Pages app is the easiest to get this effect, and it’s the same in Numbers / Keynote. To get the following effect:

outline text from Pages.app

  • Format the text to 64 pt
  • Format the text color to neutral gray
  • Enable Outline - keep the defaults, black line, 1 pt, solid stroke

  • Pages: See outline in extra settings.

  • Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

  • But since these are costly, see GIMP
