elipse shape help

  1. Hi
    I have a landscape picture that I want to put in an elipse frame
    Each time I get an elipse in white & the area outside is still the
    picture. What I want is the picture to remain in the elipse & the
    outside to be white.
    How would I do this please

    After you draw the ellipse, go to Select>Inverse and then Delete. The
    area outside of the ellipse will be the color you have set as the
    background color.

  4. Thanks Tony
    What I should have selected was the elipse marquee tool, not the
    elipse tool
