Found on another forum:

"In Photoshop CS6, we've implemented 'true' vector stroking that allows for sharp or rounded corners with any stroke alignment (Inner, Centered, Outer). Most users were using layer effect strokes as a crutch for lack or real vector strokes."

Only got CS5 in work (MoD Budget) but I'll check when I get home

how about:

Ctrl + click on the layer to select its contents
Press Q for Quick mode then Filter>other>maximum 15px
Press q again
use the paint bucket to fill the space bettween the pic and your selection with a colour
ctrl + d to deselect
Ctrl + click on the layer to select its contents

add stroke inside 18px

I'll try that Lob and thanks again.

Paul, also using Photoshop CS6 so will be interested to know about that. Off to do some more Googling.
