    it can be done in flash as well, just search for any slide show whether you're using AS3 or AS2 and just create a mask with rounded edges.

    blue-genie is correct.    The mask he is referring to is like a picture frame. As the images go behind the frame. So your image can have rt angle corners.  But the mask will "mask them" and the y will appear rounded,

    Thanks Selvol & Blue-Genie - I'm going to try the java first, as it seems easier than Flash. But I like the tutorial from republic of code - it gave me good ideas.
