I'm afraid you have picked a rather sophisticated program to do a very
simple task, and while we can do it, it is going to be a bit more
steps than what a simpler (though less useful) program would require.
First, get your image out there, select the Eclipse as we discussed
before. Now, choose a color for the outside line of the eclipse and
the inside fill for the eclipse... yes i know we don't want that fill
color there at all, but pick a nice blue or red anyway...
Now, if it is not already up on the desktop, we need the Layers Window
open. If you don't see it, go to the Menu bar at the top and click on
Windows, then from the drop down, choose Layers.
We might need to click our tool back on Eclipse at this point, and
then draw the eclipse where we want our circle to be.
Now, back to the Layers Window; near the top of this little tool
window you will see the word "Fill" with 100% beside it, and a small
arrow button. Click on the small arrow button and slide the slider to
the left. This changes the percentage of "Alpha" for the fill of your
circle (or what ever the layer is). Once you have it where you want
it, you are done.
I'm made two pictures so that you can get an idea visually of what I'm
talking about.. as I draw a circle to highlight my pal Omi from the
