Emphasizing an Image

You can emphasize an image by placing a border around its edges. This process is called stroking the edges. The default color of the border is the current foreground color on the toolbox. You can change the width, color, location, and blending mode of a border using the Stroke dialog box. The default stroke width is the setting last applied; you can apply a width from 1 to 16 pixels. The location option buttons in the dialog box determine where the border will be placed. If you want to change the location of the stroke, you must first delete the previously applied stroke, or Photoshop will apply the new border over the existing one.
