    Curved Edges

    I was checking out CSS Vault yesterday, and I saw http://telerana.f2o.org/. Iíve taught myself the basics of Adobe Photoshop, but I could never figure out how to make some sort of curves mask. What I mean is on the rotating pictures on the front page, the sides are curved, so I assume each picture was put into some sort of frame and then save it. So what I want to be able to do is have some sort of frame or mask or whatever that I can just put pictures of a certain size in to give it curves. Does anyone know how to do this?

    You could use the Rounded Rectangle Tool to draw the basic rounded shape on a new layer.

    Ctrl+Click that layer to select the shape, and go up to Select and hit Inverse.

    This leaves you with a 'stencil' selection that you could use to delete edges and corners on your images.

    This making sense? It is late

    Sounds like a good idea, but I don't see "Inverse" anywhere. where is it located?
    Edit:

    I found it, for anyone else who needs it, its under "select" on the top menu. Thanks! it works great!

    Anyway, glad this is what you were looking for!
