How To: Round a corner of a rectangle in Photoshop

Amazee Labs Current Affairs

With the introduction of Photoshop CC it has become really easy to change the radius size of a rectangle. This tutorial will show you how to achieve this with both Photoshop CC and CS6.

Photoshop CC

1. Create a new Photoshop file and create a rectangle and enter the radii. (Adobe finally made it a core feature!)

2. If you need to adjust the border radius you can do that now really easy. Just select the rectangle and go to the Properties (Window > Properties). Here you can adjust the border radius of each side.

Note: This only works with rectangles created in Photoshop CC. For rectangles created in CS6 (or below) you have to use a the script mentioned below.

Photoshop CS6

So how can you round the corner of a rectangle in Photoshop CS6? This is how I do it.

Pre-work

1. Download the “Rounded Rectangle Radius Resizer” script for Photoshop.

2. Unzip the file "RoundedRectangleRadiusResizer1_2.zip".

3. Move the file “Rounded_Rectangle_Radius_Resizer.jsx” to the Photoshop Presets/Scripts folder (Default Mac location: /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS6/Presets/Scripts/) and make sure that Photoshop is closed while doing so.

4. Start up Photoshop

Let’s start

5. Create a rectangle in a new Photoshop file.

6. Go to File > Scripts > Rounded_Rectangle_Radius_Resizer

7. Change the radius to 10 (Pixel) and hit apply.

Note: You can also use different radius sizes on each edge.

That's all folks - a piece of cake, don't you agree?
