PhotoShop CC: Need to overlay enlarged image

I have a wide angle view of a map and need to put a circle (or square) round a small piece of it and over the enlarged detail on the unimportant part of the map.

How do I do this?

Hello,

I think this is what you want to do minus the James Bond effect.

Select the area you want to enlarge
Press CTRL + J to duplicate section to new layer
Press CTRL + T to transform, change the size (hold SHIFT to maintain aspect) then press ENTER when done

Shaun, Thanks for the tip. I have a Mac and it's not working. Do you know the Mac Keys to hold and press?

Ernie, this video helps a lot. But when I create a rectangle and manually type a pixel width of 5, and a Fill of 0%, the thickness of the frame is not the same.

I need all four sides to be the same thickness.

Any idea what I am going wrong?

Thanks, it works. That's cool but I need to enlarge that area and need the best resolution possible. So, I need to insert a different image into that square (see my other question)

But I still need that neat frame I can n ow create to have four sides of the same thickness...

Drag another image onto your picture in Photoshop to add it as a new layer. Delete the sections you do not want to use.
Add borders with this

I want the image inside the frame I created (and which has an uneven border thickness I need to solve)
