    Hi,

    You can draw the outline only by doing the following:

    1) Make a new layer
    2) Select the shape tool
    3) In the tool options bar click (3rd left) Paths
    4) Drag out the shape
    5) Do either
    i. Right click on the line and click stroke path. Choose brush, pencil or whatever. This will stroke the path with the current brush/pencil settings.

    or ii. Right click on the line, choose Make selection, set feather to zero and say OK then go to Edit->Stroke. Choose the thickness and color and say OK.

    Hi Deepa
    1 - Draw any shape
    2 - goto Layer styles, add stroke (choose color, position and width) press Ok
    3 - Drop that layer fill to 0%

    This way you can always edit your shape.
    Good luck
    F1 and Google are your friends
    This one might help too
