Step 2: Click on the pencil tool (if it's on the paintbrush tool, right click and choose the pencil). Make sure it's on the smallest brush, and the color is black.

Now holding the shift button for a perfectly straight line, draw two lines across the image - however wide you want your bar to be.

Step 3: Next, select the paint bucket tool and make the color white. Change the opacity to anywhere from 10% to 20% depending on how light/dark you want it to be. I chose 12%. Fill between the two lines.

Done! Now you can add some text if you want to.
