Rounded Corners Are Nice

Quick tool tip of the day: If you have a (ahem) rounded corner fetish but aren't so handy with Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, there's an online tool that will allow you to quickly add rounded corners to any photo or graphic.

Just head to RoundPic.com and either select a photo from your computer or enter in a URL. Click the "Round It!" button and your anti-aliased, rounded corner image will magically appear. You can even select the amount of rounding you want and the background color that will define the space "behind" the image. A downloadable image is then made available for your use. A perfect solution from a website that focuses on one common problem. Enjoy!

LOL. Wait, are you suggesting I have a thing for rounded corners? Or that I have fetishes in general?

Well, either way, I definitely know my way around Photoshop! :-P

Very cool reference, though. Looks super-handy.

As an aside, did you know that rounded corners are part of the CSS3 spec, and are already implemented in Safari & Mozilla?

@Nathan: LOL! Yes, Yes and Yes! :-D

And I *know* you are a Photoshop whiz, but this is a super tool for those who aren't or even when you are in a rush. I really think that it's a nice touch that it gives you a file that you can download. I love these kind of sites that solve one problem very elegantly!

Chris, I totally agree with you on these sites that solve one problem, cool.

@1 - Nathan, now how about you stop bragging about your Photoshop skills and go write a SnTT about how to do the round corners using it? ;-)

I for one, knew what URL I would find before I even hovered over the "ahem" link. Which makes me wonder if anyone didn't know what was at the other end of that link.
