OK, so I have Googled this, but NONE of the directions do what they say that they should be doing!
I begin by creating a nnew layer.
Then I click on the Rectangle Tool and select Ellipse Tool.
Next I hold down the shift key and I drag the mouse.
It draws a circle that is 1 pixel thick and is black.
What dio I do with this black circle????????
I want to be able to move it and resize it. ThenI want to be able to change the thickness of the circle and change the color, BUT How on EARTH do you do this?????
Using the Move Tool just draws as a rectangle!!!
Allegedly, Edit - Stroke... is supposed to allow me to edit it, BUT all it wants to tell me is "Could not stroke the layer because there is nothing to stroke.".
What am I missing here???????
Although you can draw a circle in Photoshop, keep in mind that it is not built as a drawing program, like Adobe Illustrator is.
Choose the Ellipse Tool – make sure the Shape Layer Option is checked in its command bar. You can also choose a color the command bar too.
Drag out your Elipse (hold down the shift key) to the approximate size (you can make it exact later)
This should give you a shape layer that consists of a solid color and a vector mask that looks like a circle.
Go Layer>Layer Style>Stoke and choose a stroke weight, color and position.
To adjust the size of the circle, go Edit>Transform Path>Scale and you will be able to type in pixel dimensions in the transform Width and Height input boxes (just use “px” instead of the default “%”)
This is one way to draw a circle in Photoshop.
