I am removing the background in some pictures and changing the color to white.

However, I would like to place some type of "border" around the object inside the picture (using the outline of the magic wand).

Are their different types of options for the border such as straight and fuzzy lines?

Does anyone know how I would be able to achieve this?

I would really appreciate any help.

Thank you.

RE: Please help with Magic Wand

What version of PSP are you using?

You won;t get many options for the border if you use the Magic Wand Selection, as pretty much the only thing you can do is flood fill with a color.

If you want something a bit more stylish, you'll likely need to trace the contour of the object with the Pen tool to produce a Vector Path.

The Vector Path will let you change the width color, and style of line so you can have more choices for your border.

Ignorance is not necessarily Bliss, case in point:
Unknown has caused an Unknown Error on Unknown and must be shutdown to prevent damage to Unknown.
