Click on the main selection tool on the toolbar, then set your shape. Draw
the shape into the image (and adjust the position of the selection marquee
if necessary.) Once your selection area is just right, right click over it.
From the popup menu, click Border. This opens the Border dialog box...enter
the width of your border, hit enter, and not the only thing selected is the
border you just made. Click Ctrl+F to open the fill dialog, set your color,
click ok. Instant boxes and rings :) If this isn't clear, or you need more
help, please feel free to ask me.
