Let's add outlines to the basic buttons we created earlier. Select the layer that contains your button. Open the Layer Style dialog box by clicking on the Add a layer style button at the bottom of the Layers palette and selecting Stroke... from the menu that appears. You'll see that the Stroke style is checked and highlighted— this adds the outline to your button. Change the look of your stroke by adjusting the settings. You can see from the dialog shown above that I gave mine a black outline by clicking on the color patch and setting the color to black, and gave it a thickness of one pixel by typing 1 into the Size field (you could also use the slider to adjust the size of the stroke).
