A Layter with Outline Only - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Ok, Maybe I'm missing something. How do I make a simple outline, with no fill, just an outline. I can't seem to figure it out. I want to make a retangular outline. Thanks...

    You can draw a rectangle with the rectangular marquee tool, then click
    Edit->Stroke. Play around with the Stroke options to see what you like.

    No doubt, there are otherTR>
    hods you could use, but I know that this one
    works.

    Make a new layer the size you want and check "transparent"...... "File" /
    "new".

    Now on that layer use the rectangular selection tool and create a rectangle
    the size you want.
    Then go to "edit" and "stroke" and choose a color and size for the line you
    want
    Click OK and you have a transparent rectangle with a line.

    Thanks Pete and Byron. Great advice. When you say "check transparent" after making a new layer, where do I do that? After that, I can find everything else.

    I know, I'm stupid.

    I think that Pete is referring to the "Contents" option on the File->New
    dialog - allows you to choose from White, Background or Transparent for the
    contents of your new file.
