In Fireworks, it's very easy to do this. Just choose the rectangle tool, choose "transparent" for the fill color, and black for the outline color.

How do I do this in Photoshop 7?

you could use the rectangular selection tool on an empty layer and then select edit > stroke

that should do it.

I just tend to select the rectangle then do Modify --> Border and set the border width. Then you just fill it black.

Thanks, Ben. That did it. BTW, you have to select "center" or "inside". It won't show up if you select "outside".

Not sure which program you are referring to, but I was asking how to do it in Photoshop 7, and there is no menu category entitled "Modify". There is in Fireworks, but there is no "border" to select in Fireworks under that menu category, at least not in MX. Thanks, though.

it will if your selection area is smaller than the canvas size.
