More rounded smooth corners?
Thanks for all previous help.

I've created a 1px border rounded rectangle, (image attached) however, the corners sems jagged and flat. Is there a way to create more smoothed rounded corners?

Give "Select > Rounded Rectangle" from the image menu bar a try.

Is the attached image the finished size ?

If it is then the radius at the corners is only 4 pix ie. too small to be 'rounded'

Thanks for the replies.
If 4px is too small to be rounded, what's the minimum?
Thanks

I did notice the 'no antialiasing' but when it comes to these small values, unlike the atom you can not split a pixel. You have a nice 1 pixel outline for your image, you will have to give that up using antialiasing.

A suitable value for the radius, all in the eye of the beholder. Some tests, made using a selection, no antialiasing, then stroked with a 1 pixel brush rather than the regular 1 pix stroke setting.

Generally look awful. You might try say 10 pix radius and some hand editing on the pixel level. Still does not look good. Keep the bevel.
