    Ellipse select tool > Start selecting > Hold down shift > Click on the circle to select it > Edit (Menu) > Stroke Selection - Voila!

    Alternative method: Select a circle again > Fill it > Select (menu) > Shrink few pixels > Delete

    I have done that. I got a circle fully filled with color. I want only the border of the circle.

    1) Draw the circle as shown in the previous posts.

    Before filling it:

    2) Select the ellipse tool. Hold down control and draw another circle. This detracts from the original selection.

    3) Adjust the circle as necessary so you get as much of the outline as you need.

    4) Fill as normal.

    An easier way is to

    1- Select the "Ellipse select tool"
    2- Select the area where u want ur circle to appear
    3- From "Select" menu choose "Border" (the Border Selection indicates the size of the circle's border in pixel)
    4- Another circle will appear inside the 1st one
    5- Choose the circle's color by Fill tool or simply drag a color in the circle's area.

    Now u have a nice circle =)

    This kind of post doesn't really fit into this forum.

    There are better subforums for this.

    That being said, google will always be able to help you with these kind of questions.

    Hell, most of these kind of things have video instructions on youtube.
