Step 1: Add a rectangle to your photo
Begin by activating the Rectangle tool in the toolbar. In the options at the top, set the Fill to a solid color (it doesn’t matter which color you use, as it won’t be visible in your final image), and make sure that the Stroke is set to No Color.
Then, draw a rectangle over your image.
Step 2: Create the rounded corners
Next, hover over the small circle near one of the corners, and drag it toward the center of the rectangle. This creates the rounded corner effect on all four corners.
Tip: To only adjust one corner at a time, press and hold the OPT (Mac) or ALT (Win) key as you click and drag the corner.
Step 3: Clip the photo to the rectangle
Now it’s time to add the photo to the rectangle. Begin in the Layers panel; if your image layer is locked, click the lock icon to unlock it. Then, drag the image layer so that it is above the rectangle.
Then, hover in-between the two layers while pressing the Opt (Mac) or Alt (Win) key. When the icon changes, click and it will clip the photo to the rectangle.
