Ok everyone, I need help.

I have done everything so far on the instructions but I am stuck on the second last line.
"-On the top image layer, you can apply a stroke or bevel or drop shadow."

I know how to get to the top image layer, but I do not know where the stroke, bevel or drop shadow gadgets are. I have only been playing in Elements since fall a bit so I am a real rookie.

I am using version 5.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

While you are answering this question you can tell me where I am to store this pic so I can show my result to everyone. I am on photobucket and flickr. hopefully I can use either one of those.
the bevel and drop shadows can be found under styles tab in your layers pallet. To add a stroke..there are several ways to do this. Here is one I use.
with you rectangular marquee tool draw a box around your image where you want it stroked, then go select>inverse. next go to layer>new via copy. That put it on its own layer. then ctrl click on that thumbnail in your layers palette. You should see marching ants. Now either fill that with a color or use a layer style on it.
If you need more help give a holler
Thank you for your help. :woohoo:

Now to the FAQ's to find out how I put it here.
If you need help...holler
My attempt. Thanks! I'll use this often!

Looks great, and welcome to the forum. Hope to see you here often.
Here's mine. I hope this works.


Ok i finally got it here, but I had to resize it really small. Now a question. Why do I have a white background. The photo was quite large but when I followed the tutorial it came out like this with the white background. I must have done something wrong somewhere.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

can you by any chance post a screenshot of your layers palette...also how did you resize it to post here.
going back and reading the tutorial, I think I see what might be the problem..what numbers did you type in for resize canvas??? and did you make sure it was in inches not pixels???
Ok I think I got it now. I did drag the anchor points far enough on the edges of canvas. When I went back to the psd file I was able to do that.


Well I got it on here but now it is such a tiny pic. What size should the pics be for this site. :)

By the way thks for the help. I hope I am not annoying too much.
