How can I in PSP or PhotoShop make a simple oval and control the border thickness on so I can drop images in it like an oval framed picture?

Pulling my hair out here. Can't find anyway to control the border.

Thanks
John

I tried some of those. I just tried again, and got closer, but was hoping someone had a little more direction for me.

Thanks

You don’t normally drop a picture in an oval frame. You use the oval marquee around what you want to frame. Select>Invert and hit the delete key. Then follow one of the tutorials for whatever frame you want.

Actually a friend is trying to create an oval for a product label and he wants to be able to put pics in the oval a have the border thicker than default.

I’ve never had reason to do that but I think it would be the same. Make a new file with the background color what you want. Use the elliptical marquee tool to select an oval. Select>Inverse and hit the delete key. Any of the tutorials should work from there. You can make any kind of border or frame you want and just drag the images to it. For something simple go Edit>Stroke. You can make it as thick as you want. Use a large file size to reduce aliasing.
