When I try to add an outline to a shape I drew with the ellipse tool, the "Edit>Stroke (Outline) Selection" isn't highlighted so can't be used. I make sure that I'm in that layer. What step am I missing?
Press CTRL+left click on the layer thumbnail of the outline to make the outline active,---- see marching ants
Thanks a million
You're welcome. Glad to help.
Can I use a gradient as my stroke color after using it in the layer styles menu?
Yes, you can.
HOW CAN I REMOVE A STROKE OUTLINE
If the stroke is on its own layer, as suggested in step #2 post #6 above, delete the layer.
Otherwise, use the clone stamp tool and work your way around the stroke.
Can anyone help me make a colored outline around a custom shape I have created within the page?
Please post a print screen so that we may see your creation, then we can respond appropriately.
