Set up a new layer in your image.
Now using the rectanguelar marquee tool, draw a rectangular
selection. Next click Select > Modify > Smooth, and enter a number
that corrsponds to the number of pixels you want your radius to be.
Click on Okay. Now your selection will have radiused corners. Use the
to flood it with whatever colour you want your line to be.
Next click Select > Modify > Contract, and enter a number that
corrsponds to the number of pixels width you want your line to be.
Click on Okay. Now hit the delete key on your keyboard.
Lastly, click Select > Deselect.
That will replicate the effect you have shown us, but this is only
one of a dozen or so different ways of doing the same job.
You'll get loads of other answers suggesting different methods. Each
one as valid as the last one. The trick is to try them all and find
the one that you find easiest.
Thanks a lot for your detailed answer. I have read with attention and
i have done all you have described, and the result is a little
different from my example. Infact in my example the two lines, one
black and one white, in the *curvature* mix themeselves and exit
inverted. Infact i think this is an effect like a object impressed by
light. The final impression of this effect is that the lines seem to
be a track impressed on the background.
Aaaah. I didn't notice first time round that there was a white line too. I
thought you were asking how to radius the corners on a square shape.
Adding the white line to it is a trivial task.
Just copy the entire layer with your shape on it to a new layer.
Now click Image > Adjust > Invert
You should now see two versions of the same shape. One in black, and one in
Just move the white one so it's offset from the black one by onepixel
horisontally and one vertically.
Of course, you might not want the second shape to be white...That's no
problem...We can make it any colour we want to...
Ensure that your new offset layer is selected, then click on Image >Adjust >
Now select the colour that outline currently is and in the bottom part of
the window, select the colour you want it to change to...
Couldn't be simpler...
Or.....There's yet another possible way to do it....
With the original layer you made with your shape on it selected, click on
Layers > Layer Style > Drop Shadow.
Now use the following settings....
Blend mode = normal.
Set the colour to white or whatever you need.
Opacity to 100%
Angle to 135 degrees or whatever you need
distance = 1
spread = 0
size = 1
contour set to the convex grey quadrant shape.
anti alias = unticked
noise = 0
Click okay, and you ha're done.
