    Adding a stroke on a layer by itself?

    bib342564

      I have an image and want to highlight only a portion of it (I'm an educator). I know how to create a stroke effect (draw a marquee and select Stroke from the Edit menu) but it puts it directly on the image. I don't want to do this. I want to be able to move the stroke object around and apply a drop shadow on it. But, when I tried to create a stroke on a new layer, nothing happens. I can create this easily in Skitch, but how do you do this in Photoshop?
