Drawing a circle in Paint Shop Pro 9 (PHOTO EDITOR)

I have a school photo and I want to create a colored circle around one person's head to identify them.

I tried the preset shape tool and I can create the edge color, but I can't get rid of the fill colour.

I have tried using the selection tool but can't figure out how to color the edge of this.


when you draw the circle, open the 'layer' dialogue box. it could be under view>palettes (it is in paint shop pro 8)

the circle should be created on a new layer called 'vector'. expand that and then double click on the circle. a new dialogue box will open and there you can decheck the 'fill' option. that way you'll just have the stroked outline left.

this works for 6 & 8, so i hope it works for 9 as well.
