Cannot add a border using Photoshop CS5

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have been trying to add a border using Photshop CS5 but I end up getting this error message. Here is what I did: I created a new layer and selected the rectangle tool. Next, I go to Edit>Stroke and then I proceeded to set the parameters of the border as ‘1 pxl, inside’ and chose the color for border as blue. Then I clicked OK and got this error saying that there is nothing to stroke. What could wrong with my method? I have tried several times but always receive this error and have failed to figure out the problem. I am new to Photoshop am still trying out the features of this software. It would be a great help if someone could point out what is the mistake and give me a step by step instruction on how to perform this on a Mac Mountain Lion machine. Thanking you in advance for taking your time out to help me solve this problem.

Could not stroke the layer because there is nothing to stroke.

 Many Adobe applications require Java to run their certain components in the beginning of installation process or during the software operation. Reinstall Java 6 and do the following.

1. Open a layer.

2. Give a background color or import a background image.

3. Next you continue with your previous process, i hope it will work.

In order to make a border you need to have something on your layer first… empty layer won’t make any borders.
