    rounded edges

    Level 7
      Hi,
      I wanted to make a simple square image have maybe one or two rounded corners
      and was stuck trying to figure out how to do this. Is this simple or am I
      missing something obvious? I'm using FWMX and was looking for something
      similar to the flash images on the right of this site where two of the
      corners are rounded. http://www.madderns.com.au/web/

      Any pointers tutorials would be really appreciated.
      Thanks
      Brian

          Use the Rounded Rectangle tool--which you'll find if you press and hold
          on the vector rectangle tool--to draw the square. Press Alt/Opt to
          change the radius of individual corners.

            Thanks Linda,

            My problem is that the image is already imported and made up and it's to
            this I was hoping to tweak the corners. Is that still what you recommend?

            Thanks
            Brian

                You could still use that rounded rectangle, to mask your imported image. Just select both objects and then click Modify >> Mask >> Group as mask.

                Make sure that the imported image is on top of the rounded rectangle, otherwise it won't work quite as intended. ;-)
