    @Amy Believe me I didn't know of the right click to obtain the stroke. Thank you very much.
    One last thing how do you judge what size to make the document in relation with the image that you will be dropping in. Do you use a percentage?

    I usually start by making a file that a standard size larger. Let's say your edited image is 12"x18" at 240dpi....Make a file 16"x20" at 240dpi then drop your image in and see how it looks. If the mat seems too small try making one that's 20"x24" at 240dpi

    Are key lines a requirement? Do you lose points for not submitting with mat and key lines?

    Joe,
    I know you are newere to this, so let me point out a couple of things....

    1. We dont take points off.
    2. Key lines are not required, but they can be very helpful in keeping the judges eyes inside the area you want them to be.
    3. No one should ever be able to say " This image is ok, but I LOVE the keyline"
    4. It should be nearly unoticeable, just like the retouching.
