I am looking to create a simple border in Gimp and have tried both the selection >> border and both the stroke selection methods and both are not creating what I am looking for. The stroke selection technique is the closest I have gotten. I am looking to create an outline in gimp around a selection using diagonals. Like the following (the dark purple):
How would I go about making the border like the top (connected diagonally) all the way around. I could do it manually but I have spent hours doing this tedious task. Thanks in advance.
