Hi experts,

I can normally do this easily with Photoshop.


But for this example, I'm using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.
So please, any info you can give me should pertain to Photoshop Elements 9.


Example 1

For this example I want to draw a red square with rounded corners with no fill.

So I used the Rectangular Marquee Tool.

I created the following.
Step 1

Step 2

step 2
Step 3

This is just what I want, but I need this to have rounded corners.

Any idea on how I can add rounded corners using the Rectangular Marquee Tool?




Example 2

Now I tried using the Rounded Rectangle Tool.

Step 1

Step 1
So my result is this:

my result
My red square shape with rounded corners is just what I need.
But I don't need it to be filled in.

I just need the outline of this shape with the rounded corners.

On this example, how do I get rid of the fill?

In Example 1, use the technique in Example 2 to get rounded corners ;-)

In Example 2, use Edit menu -> Stroke selection??? It is the same thing with the GIMP :-)

In my question. I asked that I needed to know how to do this with Photoshop Elements 9.

I already know how to do it with Adobe Photoshop.

The comment I got to my question did not work with Photoshop Elements 9.

Since no one was able to show me how to do it with Photoshop Elements 9 then my workaround was just forget about trying to do it with Photoshop Elements 9.

My workaround was to use Adobe Photoshop.
