I'm having a nightmare today with Photoshop ๐Ÿ˜”

 

I know the issue is probably something simple but I've spent hours trying to figure out and am at my wits end!

 

Basically - I want to draw simple Ellipses which is fine - but - when I change the setting to Stroke - I'm getting loads of ellipses in the background! I literally don't know what to do?

Any help very much appreciated! thank you in advance!

Compliments at posting a screenshot! 

But could you post one that includes the Options Bar and the Paths Panel? 

 

Apparently the Shape Layer you created consists of several elliptical subPathItems and the active elliptical Path is either not one of them or has a PathOperation-setting that ยปnegatesยซ it.

Thanks, but โ€ฆ the Paths Panel and the Layers Panel are not mutually exclusive per se. 

 

Anyway, you seem to have set a Dashed Stroke (edit: which means my original assumption was wrong and you had indeed created the Shape Layer with the intended elliptical path):

What is your end goal by the way. 110pt Stroke is huge at least for your document.

If the Stroke is set in Points, rather than Pixels, it would be resolution dependant, too.
