CS2 uses the crippled Opera browser as John said, along with nonintuitively named and zipped HTML help files. It does, however, have a PDF version of the manual, named something like Photoshop Help.pdf.

The Marquee is a selection tool. You need to use the Rounded Rectange Tool.

Hit F1. type in "Tools Palette" and read up on all the options, where they are, and how to use them.

The problem is, someone mentioned the Custom Shape tool. It’s the Shape tools, not the Custom Shapes. They are all in the same place though. Look.

"…someone mentioned the Custom Shape tool…"

Mea culpa.

Still, that should have been enough to draw Jose’s attention away from the Marquee Tool and in the right direction. But I apologize for being inaccurate.

Funny how ImageReady has a Rounded Rectangle Marquee Tool, and Photoshop doesn’t. That’s never made any sense to me.
