border on Oval photo

Hi. Please help me remember. I have an oval photo on a white rectangular BG. Using PS CS2 I would like to put a small black border around the oval only, then outline the entire oval only and move it to another photograph. I'm drawing a complete blank. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Re: border on Oval photo

Make a new layer filled with the color of your choice (you said black), then make a layer mask. Fill the mask with black. Then make an oval to the point that you want to make the black line. Then fill oval with white. Make another oval that follows the line of the original oval and fill with black.

As for the copy of the oval... duplicate the image and make a layer mask. Make an oval that goes along with the original oval and fill with black. If you don’t want the white boarder then also black that out too. Then hide all other layers. You should now see only the boarder. Select all and copy and paste it into the new file.

Hope it helps,
