How Do I Create a Border With Radius Corners in Photoshop?


While it might sound complex, creating a rounded border with a customized radius on each corner is straightforward in Adobe Photoshop CC 2014. To begin, create a border with rounded corners using the Rounded Rectangle Tool. After it's set up, you can specify the radius for the corners and even apply a different radius for each corner.

Step 5

Click the "Lock" icon to deselect it. You can now specify a different radius for each corner by typing a value in each Radius text field. Adjust the border's size as needed and place it in front of a photo, text box or other object in your Photoshop project.

Unlock the corners to make each radius different.
