Hello.
I am using a background (a bitmap) in photoshop.
The image’s bounds is always a rectangle.

I can do round-rectangle and an image on seperated layers. How can I do : an image that its bounds is a rounded-rectangle ?

Thanks 🙂

Shapes palette. Select Rounded Rectangle and at the very top menu, see the box for Radius [ ], and type in a radius. Play with the amount of radius, say around 20. Change it to suit yourself. Make it a mask if you like. Masks are a different subject.

Yes you can round, square, triangle, star, wave-shape etc.. just about any shape you wish.

You can use layer or applying directly to the original layer (depending on your method) if your wish, but layer is usually a good practice (safety).

You just use the tool to draw a circle, drag to the corner where you want it to be rounded, then use whatever tool you are fimilar with like:

Erase, Fill, Invert, Tranparent etc.. and this is a very basic thing to do. Or it’s pretty much same with with what you do on a piece of paper.

1. Laying a piece of paper on a table

2. Now trying to cut or fold directly to the sheet of paper to make it round.

3. Or cutting another piece of paper with round corner (similar to LAYER) then lay it on top of the 90 degree corner then you have rounded corner.

You can’t. It’s not possible; all raster (pixel) images are always rectangular, period.

What you can do is make the parts you don’t want to be there, be transparent. It’s still a rectangle, but the rounded corners are transparent and therefore invisible. The exact way you do this depends on how you plan to use the image. Are you planning to use the image on the Web, or in print, or what?

(I have the old version of photoshop 7.0)

I succeeded creating a rounded-rectangle object
(it is on the tool box).

1. The reounded-rectangle is created automatically on other layer.
2. What color should have the rounded (is its opacity = 0%) ?
3. What should I do next – I have another layer with image on it. Should I cut the rounded-rectangle layer – and how come the other image on the other layer should be cut either ?

Thanks 🙂

Founded.
I should do "edit quick mask mode" before add a rounded-rectangle.

Thanks 🙂

I don’t know what you mean by editing Quick Mask Mode, but I can tell you that *if* you have ever worked and understand how LAYER works then you should be able to come up with 1001 different ways to get what you want. And Quick Mask can be one or several of them (I say several because there are many different ways).

One little thing :

When I use the mask tool, as I have described,
I copy & paste the selected mask.
How can I copy & past (or delete) only what is not selected ?

Thanks 🙂

Invert the selection. Shift-CTRL or CMD (Mac) – I

But I think your approach is not right to start with.
