I use 'Round Rectangle Tool' to create a rounded rectangle shape.

I want to apply dark gray border on the right and bottom of a rectangle shape (layer).

What is the solution to do this? I have tried to play around with Stroke (Position: Inside) from Blending option but no luck.

I always put in a separate layer, make rectangle, then delete unwanted lines –  Eric Yin Mar 25 '12 at 22:27

You could use for example Inner shadow to do that.

Other potential Layer style ways of doing that would be: Drop Shadow and Bevel and emboss


Here's a bottom right border made with Inner shadow:

And Those other mentioned Layer styles would also go by same basic idea. ( With drop shadow you could make a border that is set outside. )
