    could someone show me how to create curved edges on pictures using photoshop. This is still puzzling me, so it will be much appreciated even if you give the basic instructions.
    thanks

    Adjust the feather value. If that's what you're talking about.

    Do you mean the edge of the picture ( a photo for example) fades away, or do you want a more definete, but curved edge?

    Using selections this will allow you to create curved corners...

    (Shift+M) for the Eliptical Marquee, align the cursor directly over a corner (bottom left for example.) Hold shift & Alt, then drag in slightly towards the centre of the image depending on what size you want.

    Make a new layer,(layer > new) fill the selection (Alt+Backspace) Edit > Transform > Rotate 180... from there you can duplicate the layer with the corner on and rotate them for the 3 other remaining corners, dragging them into place.

    From there hold Ctrl & Shift+Click on each corner from the layers pallete and then hide the layer with your picture on. Select the Magic Wand tool and ensure the 'use all layers' & 'contigous' boxes are checked. From there hold shift and click in the centre of the canvas. Shift+Ctrl+I to inverse the selection.

    From there you have a selection in which you can create curved edges to an image. (see final screenshot for result)

    If this isn't what you meant let us know.

    that is what i mean, but is there an easier way of achieving this, like by pasting the image inside an object?

    Not sure if there is a easier way in Photoshop, but in PainShop pro there is a 'Rounded Rectangle' selection tool, which seems to be just what you need. You can download a free trial of PaintShop from here:

    www.jasc.com

    In PaintShop: Use the 'Rounded Rectangle' tool to select the area you want to keep, goto 'Selections'>'Invert Selection' then goto 'Edit'>'Cut'. Easy.

    Come to think of it, that would be easier.

    The same is available in photoshop, hidden under the shape tools. The example posted before might look long, but when you're familiar with the tools & environment it's pretty snappy.

    Ah, I didn't realise Photoshop had a rounded rectangle tool. But how can you use it to make a selection. I've had a quick play around and can't work it out.

    This is really easy. Let's assume your picture is on it's own layer.

    Cntl click the layer so the pictures is selected (rectangle selection).

    Go to Select>Modify>Smooth

    Enter the value of the radius of the rounded cirlce in this corner.

    Go to Select>Inverse

    Press delete or fill with color.
