ctrl+click on the thumbnail of the picture in photoshops layers pallette, from the menu at the top select "Select->Modify->Smooth."  Enter a value of about 20+.  Then select the inverse of yoru current selection (ctrl+shift+i) and either hit delete or the mask button on the bottom of the layers toolbar depending on if you think you will modify it later...  I would recommend the mask.

photoshop has a rounded rectangle tool where you can set the radius of the rounded edges. draw one of those and create a layer mask from it.

You talking about the shape tool ya?  Another good way.  :)  

Truth be told there is about a dozen ways to do things in PS.  Find a method that works for you and go for it.

generally, when i want to do something like that, i create the shape i want, then i create a layer folder and while the folder layer is selected, hold control and click on the shape layer. this will create a selection around the shape. then i choose to make a layer mask with "reveal selection" and a mask appears on the folder layer. then, delete the shape layer and anything placed inside the masked folder will be masked by that shape. this way, i can move the pictures around and resize them 'under' the mask.
