I want an image with some text, such that the background color of the image is white, while the text should transparent.
The twist here is that the font I am using does not satisfy my needs, and I have to apply "transform" (using Ctrl+T) after I write using the "Horizontal Type Mask Tool" and to sort of spread the text horizontally (so that the letters become a bit less condensed).
What I tried:
Deldeleted everything from the selected text.
But when I deselected it, the result was very ugly. There is an ugly black border sort of a thing around the text.
I have also tried using the Background Eraser Tool but that doesn't do it perfectly either. So I conclude my approach for getting what I want was not good. So my question is that what is the best way to do this?

You can then unlink the mask with its layer and freely transform the mask if needed.
(White looks grey due to the reduced color palette of the animation.)
