Drop Shadow in PSE2020

I recently followed instructions in a YouTube video to increase the canvas size and add a drop shadow to a few photos. It works perfectly in PSE 2020. But, at the end of the process, I did a select all and added a stroke (outline) around the white space. This added another shadow inside the stroke which I didn't want. The only way around this I found was to save the photo as a JPG after adding the drop shadow and then reload the photo and then add the stroke. Is there a better way to do this without the extra steps of saving as a JPG and then reloading it to add the stroke?
