STEP 8: Select the Elliptical Area
Now we are going to add new layer just above the background layer. Press ctrl+shift+N/cmd+shift+N to make a new layer. Drag and drop that layer to the second last position or just above the background layer. Press ctrl+(-)/cmd+(-) to zoom out. Now select elliptical marquee tool from the left panel or by pressing shift+M again and again until it comes. I have written a whole tutorial on Marquee Tools and you should check that tutorial out if you are a beginner.
Draw an ellipse just as shown below. Note that you can change the position of the ellipse just by pressing and holding spacebar.
