    I am completely graphically challenged and cannot for the life of me create rounded corners.

    I was wondering if there is someone out there who would be kind enough to create some round corners (I need all 4 corners). Here are the colors I need:

    E1E1E1; 004BA8; FFFF9C; CEFFCE; 633100; 9C0000; 9C6331; FFCE63

    All of the colors above to be the inside with a white background so i can coordinate my little info boxes accordingly.

    If anyone can take it upon themselves to do this...I will be eternally grateful.

    THANKS!

    Hi,

    I've done those corners for you. I have put them all in a compressed ZIP file which you can download @ http://www.fletch.f2s.com/corners.zip

    raynebair...for future reference.

    Real quick lesson: This will create "capsule" effect

    Open a document.

    1) Switch to the circular marquee tool

    2) Holding down the shift button, draw a circle approx the size that you want your corners.

    3) Without deselecting, drag guides to the top and bottom and vertical center of your selection

    4) Fill with any color you want, do not deselect

    5) Holding down the SHIFT+CTRL+ALT buttons, click in the center of the circle and drag the copy to the desired width of the "button"

    6) Deselect

    7) Switch to the rectangular marquee tool, simply create a selection that fills in the middle between the two circles and voila.

    If you want a square with less rounded corners, then, using the same method, create 4 circles. One for each corner and fill again.

    Hope that helped. That is the way that I always create rounded corners.

    body { background:#000000; color:#000000 }
    HEY, WHO TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS?!?

    exactly CryingWolf...

    there is nothing wrong with doing something for someone, but it is much better to show them how to do it.

    Thanks to Fletch for the corners! and thanks to Cj for the excellent tutorial...i have been trying with IC for a while and they never seem to come out right. I will practice with this tutorial and maybe I'll be able to come up with something better.

    One suggestion for you...if you nest the content inside of another table, it will wait until the whole page is loaded to show the content. The reason this would be useful is that the first thing that loads is your corners. It looks kinda wierd to see the corners floating there for 30 seconds before the background loads. The other option would be to compress the background image more so that it loads faster. It would just make for a little better site presentation.
    Think beyond what is common...
