Hi Folks,
A query to which there will be a simple answer - I hope!
How do I create square/rectangular images in Paint Shop Pro V5 with "rounded" corners. I would have thought there would be a toolbar option but I can't find anything - or maybe I'm not looking hard enough.
Can anyone suggest a solution?

*wow* ... i can't believe this functionality doesn't appear to be in PSP5!  i think i've found a solution, though.  hope you can piece it together to make it work for you.

1. use the rectangular selection tool and select a rectangular area on an image.  (best to have feathering off).

2. select 'Selections' > 'Modify' > 'Expand' and enter the figure 10.

3. hit 'Ok' and you'll see that it expands the rectangular selection in a rounded-corners manner.  now you could either copy the shape and paste it elsewhere, or invert the selection and delete the surrounding area.

a bit clumsy i admit, but perhaps you can play round with it to make it work for you.

curious... we have psp5 installed in the office, and by following these steps it works.  good luck finding another solution (i'm out of ideas, sorry!).  maybe you should consider upgrading to psp7 which has this tool??

Here is another way, and it works in all versions of PSP and other image programs as well.

Create a work space bigger than you need.

Draw a square and fill it, color doesnt' matter.

Blurr the image repeatedly.

Use the magic wand and select the area outside of the blurred square.

Invert selection and fill the selected area. Depending on how you fill the area, you may need to make adjustments.

Then come here and say thank you. LOL LOL
