    I am probably the only one who didn't know how to do rounded corners this way. I always made them work, but it was much harder.

    Lynn, I haven't done any digital scrapbooking but this site seemed to have good directions. Lisa

    Funny I was just reading about how to do rounded corners last week. I think I came across two ways, but I can't remember how to do either of them. I'll def. check your link so I can print it out or write it down this time.

    I just looked at it (and copied into a word file this time) The other way I saw was how to do one rounded corner. I'll try and find it and post.

    I found it. It's from Jessica Sprague's photoshop friday tips. It sounds kind of confusing when I read through it, but I'll give it a try. Also, she has a free download to download a corner brush.

    I think Jessica's instructions are similar to what I had been doing, but I think this other way would be much easier once you get used to it.

    I'll have to try these, but neither is how I've been doing it. (I don't think PSE does paths, but I'll have to check.)

    Here's my procedure.

    First, I also never work on an original, but I think it is simpler just to open the photo and go to FILE-DUPLICATE to open a copy of your photo, and then close the original. (Some versions of PSE may have this under the EDIT menu instead of FILE)

    Now, use the rounded corner tool and draw a square/rectangle, to cover the area of the photo you want clipped. (You can change the 'roundness of this shape by playing with the 'radius' setting....I like mine at 200 px). This will be a separate layer on top of the photo, so I change the opacity to about 50% to see the photo underneath so I have the shape where I want it.

    Now click in the shape anywhere with the magic wand tool to select the whole shape. You will be told you need to simplify the shape, so click OK and let PSE do its thing.

    Now click on your photo in the layer palette to make sure the photo is selected, and do a FILE-COPY.

    Go paste your rounded-corner photo into your LO!

    BTW, this will work with any shape from the shape cutter tool menu....stars, hearts, etc.

    I'm feeling overwhelmed reading all these instructions. I think I just need to sit down and try each one.
