    Anyone know how to add a simple circle around soemthing in a image? I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to add a simply circle around an object in an image. I can get it to fill in the circle, but I want a red criecle around an object.:soap:

    Yes, use the elipse select tool to create a circular selection and then "stroke" it. Use the shift key to constrain the proportions of the selection and make a perfect circle (or don't). Then, chose "stroke" from the edit menu. Chose your line thickness and color. Contol-D will clear the selection and you're done.

    If this seems like a PITA, keep in mind that Photoshop is not a drawing too. That's what Illustrator is for (if you REALLY want a maddening program!). You just have to think like they do!
