How I make outer border of selection in GIMP ? I tried stroke selection, but the half of the border covers the selection area and half is out of the selected area. I want the border to be completeley out of the selected area.
Works in 2.8 and 2.10:
- Select>To path
- Edit>Stroke path (give twice the required width, since the selection will discard the inner half of the outline)
In general, stroking a path gives a cleaner result than stroking a selection anyway.
If you make the border on another layer, you could also:
- Edit>Stroke selection
This will remove the inner part of the outline (but using the method above is cleaner).
