Simple transperant round frame help, newbie
Hello all. I need to make a simple round frame with a colored outline. I found a few tutorials but am failing all of them! I have a photo of an entire body. I need to make a round circle around the head, with a colored edge. I believe I need to make it a png file so I have a transparent background. I found a rectangle png on web and was surprised I could not find much for a circle so I guess I need to make my own.
I have very basic skills and understand layers a little. My biggest problem is when I try to use the elliptical tool, my circle is not transparent, its the foreground color.

Found in another forum and sure enough, voila. I was using the Ellipse Tool and not the Ellipse Marquee tool!
