    Freeware Software package with stroke effect

    I am trying to find a software package which is freeware that will enable me to do a stroke effect , l have Photoshop but it is at home.
    I have PAINT.net but it does not appear to be able to do this.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    MS Paint can do it - to change the border width, first select the Line tool and click on the appropriate width.

    There aren't many image editing applications that can't do that - and, as with <post:=549,651>post 549,651</post:>, MSO apps can do the job for you. Can you give us a more detailed list of requirements rather than starting a new thread for each attribute you'd like the software to have?

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    I'm sure that if MS Paint can do this, Paint.NET can also. Have you checked their support forum - Paint.NET :: Index. Quick responses are usually posted.
