Question Drawing circles

I want to draw circles around some objects in an image so people will not have to hunt for these objects. I don't want to select anything, I just want to draw circles. How do/Can I do that with Elements 4?

Thanks.

Make a new layer above your image. Make sure it is active.

Using the marquee tool draw a circle around the object. Edit>Stroke. Choose an appropriate pixel width and color.

Since your circle is on its own layer, you can move and resize it as needed.

You can duplicate your first circle layer, and use your move tool to drag and resize the circle for each object you want to point out.

With PSE4 - if you want a circle not an oval - hold the shift key while you drag with your marquee tool. Holding the shift key when you use the rectangular marquee tool will get you a square.

Hi WG

You can also use the custom shapes to draw circles .. there are a few of them in there.
