I am using elements 7 and windows 7. I have my photos on my page in a template.The openings are a circle.I would like to use the edit-stroke for a border,but I cannot get it to show up.I have clicked on the layer or the photo and neither shows the white border. How do I do that?

Hmm, If you've clipped the photo to the layer below it, you could merge the two layers and then add the stroke.

 

You could also try using the Elliptical Marquee tool:  Create a new layer above the photo layer and hold the shift key down while dragging to create a perfect circle the approximate size you need; while still holding the shift key down, you can hold the spacebar down to move the circle into position.  Release the spacebar and shift key and you will see a circle of marching ants. Apply your stroke and press CTRL+D to deselect the marching ants. Now you can use the move tool to re-size/re-position the stroke layer. HTH

Teecee, thank you very much. The marquee tool worked just fine. I tried linking the photo with the template layer but still could not get the stroke outline to work. But this tool did the job.

Glad the marquee tool worked for you. :)

 

BTW, just for future reference, you said you tried linking the photo and template layer? You would not want to link the layers, but you would want to merge them by selecting both layers and pressing CTRL+E, or going to Layer>Merge Layers. This puts both layers together on one layer, and then you could add the stroke. ;)
