All of you have probably seen sigs with some corners round and some corners straight. This is the tutorial that's going to tell you how to do that.
Tutorial made with: Photoshop
Alright, so you're going to start out with a crop of something. I'll just take this crop of Sia from Shuffle.
Next, duplicate the layer. Don't worry about the options there, just click ok.
Now, select the bottom layer
and follow the steps to making rounded edges (click here
for that tutorial.)
Next, select the top layer
, choose the Rectangular Marquee Tool
, and select the corners that you want to be rounded (one corner at a time). When you have a corner selected, delete that portion of the top layer. Continue doing this till you have all of the rounded corners you want.
You might notice that some of the layers don't match up (one having 1 or 2 pixils over the other), and this isn't good. You now want to select the Polygonal Lasso Tool
, and cut out the extra pixils. (Tip:
will make the selection line be confined to straight horizontal or vertical lines.)
And you're done! Advanced Rounded Edges made simple! To add a border, just merge the two layers and add a stroke. Have fun playing around with this!
