Anti-Aliasing corners of image

I have a JPG and I Select All - Select - Modify - Smooth 8 pixels.
This puts a nice Roundedness arond the corners.
I then copy and paste to a new layer.
The only problem is that the rounded corners is very HARD. I dont seem to be able to get ANTI_ALIASING at the corners where it is rounded.
Any help appreciated.

try to duplicate the layer itself.

to do this, on the layer window, right click the layer of the image you want to copy and click duplicate layer. click ok on the dialog window(or name the layer if you wish)

that should give you an exact copy of the image you are copying,

if this is not applicable, try this.

make your selection. select Marquee tool. rightclick the seletion and click feather. try to apply a number and click OK.

try to copy and paste now.
note that this approach might need you to try a number of times to get your exact result.

hope it helps.
