Layer Style: Stroke

A stroke I can position it inside outside or the center of my object, depending on how I wanted to appear. I have all my different blending modes on how this particular color stroke is then going to react with the under color on here. I'm just going to leave it in normal. Now I'd like it to print as that I can control the opacity. And then, of course, the size that can't do point size. So why would you want to adjust your stroke inside or outside? Perfect example here I don't want the stroke infringing on my actual image and I would like it to occur outside all of my pixels.
