    If you know the steps it's pretty easy to make only one rounded corner. I'm guessing you are making a rounded rectangle selection, inverting it and hitting delete. Instead of hitting delete just use the eraser tool to erase the square corners to don't want.

    how would you crop the image though, that it has round corners. cuz the cropping tool only allows it on all corners, but then there is still a wide left over space where the eraser tool was used? just curious! :(

    David, thanks for your answer, but I do not quite understand what you are saying. First, I do not know the steps on making ONLY a rounded corner... it would be very helpful to know those steps... I think my problems could be solved that way. Second, I'm just doing the entire corners of the rectangle pictures (it is a picture, so I do not want to cut it in to two different pieces and then put it together)... the problem with doing all the corners is that I end up with FOUR rounded corners, where I just want two of them on the left side! I'm not inverting it nor deleting it nor anything like that. Any ideas/help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Yes.... either one corner or two. How did you do this one corner? If I learn to do just one corner I should be able to do two individually.

    THanks!

    VIrtual, thanks for the response, but I still do not understand the whole process for the inversion. I mean, once I create the 4 rounded corners, that's it... what is there to delete, even if I invert it the image?? BTW, how do you invert? Sorry for asking, but I'm a noob on this.
