To contract a selection following SELECT ALL, you can simply click on
SELECT > MODIFY > BORDER. Type in a number of pixels and the selection
contracts by that amount on each side. Once you have done that, if you
decide you entered the wrong amount, you will find the CONTRACT menu
item is now enabled, so use that to adjust further, if needed.
