Dashed Line Border In Photoshop

This probably is really basic but it is doing my fricking head in!

Can anyone tell me how this is done please?

Cheers

Draw a line or circle as normal, get the rubber tool and rub equal holes out it. No I had a look mate and it didnt seem to have an option for it, sorry.

I used to draw a standard line then use the 1px marquee tool to erase gaps... tho there may be another way, google it - i know there's tonnes of tutorials on em.

I found a style on the Adobe Studio Exchange that turns common or garden lines into dotted lines. Never actually used it for anything but it's nice to download free stuff. It's called Dotted Strokes. Search for that.

Just adding to this for reference. Illustrator will still give you the best results, but that's not always practical.

This thread has a decent walkthrough:

This one has a great walkthrough with screenshots on using custom brushes:
