How to create non-filled shape? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

I'm trying to draw a circle on my image, but all I can seem to do here is make a solid filled circle. It just seems to me that I must be missing something really simple here. How to I draw a circle that's not filled in?...

    Joel,

    Use the elliptical marquee tool to create the circle you want (hold shift
    while drawing to constrain it to a perfect circle).

    Then, on the menu, Edit-Stroke.

    Set the various options as you wish.

    HTH,

    Joel,

    Use the oval "selection tool" and hold the shift key to maintain a perfect
    circle.

    Once that is done go to Edit / Stroke / and enter in line thickness and
    select color.

    Joel,
    You can also access the shape selection tools, and with the ellipse tool make a circle.The advantage of this is that the circle will be on its own layer, and one can then adjust the opacity with the slider, etc.
