I have a Question

I seen this icon the other day but I didn't save it so I could ask how it was done, so i'll have to try and explain it.

Anyway, what I want to know is, this icon was coloured and it had a black and white circle on top of the colour (of the same picture) and it had a dashed line around it but it wasn't touching the image, it looked like it had been expanded about 2 pixels away from the actual image. I've tried to add a stroke when I do this but the stroke always ends up on the picture not about 2 pixels away.
Can anyone help?
Sorry if it didn't make sence, let me know and ill try and explain better.

I use PS CS2.

Question about cropping

So, my question has to do with the aspect ratio part of cropping...or, more specifically, if there's a way to ignore it?

For most of my cropping, i set it to 100x100. However, there are times when I'm wanting to crop a picture narrower than that. I know what I want the crop to look like, but I don't know the specific dimension. So, I have to keep resetting the aspect ratio and re-cropping it until I find the right aspect ratio. I just wish there was some way to "turn off" aspect ratio (sometimes) when cropping. That way, I could select it exactly how I want, and not have to deal with the aspect ratio. Is this possible?

Does my question make sense? If not, I'll try to re-explain it.

I tried to look in the memories, but I couldn't find anything.

Thank you!

EDITED TO ADD: Oh yeah, I use PS Elements

Can anyone tell me how to get this Image and video hosting by TinyPic coloring?

Sorry, I don't know who made it. It was just recently posted in a tutorial list on here, but the entry was locked. I've looked all throughout this site and other tutorial/coloring sites, plus my memories, as well as others tutorial lists to try to find something that comes close to what I'm looking for and I can't find anything. I've been playing around with different variations of layers (fill/adjustment) and I just can't quite get the vibrancy of the oranges and yellows while still keeping it looking natural.

I use PS7 btw.

Fixing washed out images

I checked the memories and couldn't find what I was looking for, but maybe I missed it (if I did, please point it out to me).

I am using CS2 and I'm having problems with
. This is the original. As you can see it's quite blue, so I did all 3 "autos" and ended up with
. Now it's almost greyscale.

I experimented with colored layers and hue/saturation, but I just can't seem to make it vibrant and natural looking.

Also, does it look a little skewed/distorted to you?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
