How to draw ellipse in Gimp

I found the steps from ubuntu forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=771058

1 – Layer > New layer
2 – Make the layer to be the same size as the image and layer fill type to transparency. This should be already selected by default.
3 – On the toolbox select the ellipse select tool and make an ellipse
4 – Use the bucket fill tool to paint the ellipse with your desired color.
5 – Right click on it and go to Select > Shrink…
6 – Type in how many pixels you want the border to be and click ok.
7 – Go to the menu and click Edit > Clear.
Done
