when cleaning images from their background I always used Photoshops Stroke Effect, which applied a coloured stroke around any visible pixels. This is extremely helpful with nearly invisible pixels or whole areas of pixels, which I can easily erase then.

So how can I accomplish the same effect with Krita?

Krita has Layer Styles - so you can do it by adding a stroke effect, similar to Photoshop.

The Layer Styles window is under Layer > Layer Style

Here I have set a red stroke on a random black shape which I painted with the Paint Brush.
