I want to make a circle or shape without any fill, but an outline, with just the outline color without fill to it. How do I do that?

1.  Use a selection tool such as the Eliptical Marquis tool and drag out the shape.  (Use the Shift key while dragging to create a circle.)

2.  Under the Edit menu, choose the Stroke (Outline) . . . dialog to create a colored line around the selection.  The default size is 1 px.  I suggest you start out at around 10 px to be able to see the colored line (but this will depend on the resolution and size of your image).

I suggest you create the circle on a new layer. Then you can use the Move tool to fine-tune the size or position of the circle.

You can also access the Custom Shape Tool, and the drop-down has a library called "SHAPES:. Among the several options is a circle.

The circle will come in on a separate layer.

If you activate the move tool, you can position the circle to suit and resize, if necessary.

A method that allows you to adjust the line weight independently of the circle size:

  • Select the shape tool and use Ellipse
  • Draw your circle how you want it
  • In the style picker, go to the "Visibility" styles and choose "Hide"
  • At the top of Photoshop Elements, go to Layer -> Layer Style -> Style Settings...
  • Check "Stroke" in the dialog box that appears, and adjust the Size and Opacity sliders to the values you want.
  • There you go!
