    Use the 'magic wand' tool and select the tag.
    Then go EDIT>STROKE select color and width and boom!
    you got it.

    really the easiest thing to do would be to import it into adobe illustrator then just make it into one of those automatic paths and change the stroke width. actually shit tesseract is right i forgot you can do that in photoshop now.

    *Note,
    if the handstyle's fill isnt flat, has to many separate pieces or faded areas that make its selection complicated and your background is a flat color ex.white paper, Select the background with the magic wand tool and the go to SELECT>INVERSE SELECTION.
    You get the same result faster and easier.
    If you are using a pre6 phtshp version and you want to use the m.w. tool multiple times, adding little pieces each time, holding down SHIFT while doing it works fine.

    awesome, thanks tesseract...
    i don't have 6, i want it...i've got this version5 limited edition...
    its pretty welfare....but seems to be alright for a novice like myself..

    um..one more....which is probably more complex...
    if i want to, for example, take a chair out of a picture, or whatever really, without
    inverseing it or whatever to use the magic wand, how do i
    do it??? do i have to use the tracing tool???? cuz that thing
    sucks....is there an easy way to pluck whole images out of
    pictures?

    to remove objects from a picture when the wand or magnetic lasso won't do it, you can use the polygonal lassoe and just zoom way in--then have the path feathered a few pixels so it doesn't look all jagged. it's a fuckin pain in the ass but i use to have to do that all the time back when i was doing graphic design full time.

    Yeah, garcia is right.
    The proper way to do that is by making a path with the bezier tool, but fuck that-way to complicated if you're now starting.
    So stick to garcia's saying,
    If you dont wish to be superexact in order to save some time and piece of mind, dont overdo the zoom part ,200-300% is pretty ok, and after you finish blur the objects edges a bit.
