Photoshop - Rounded Edges of Rectangle

How do you round the edges of a rectangle gif that has a solid color?

To do this:

1. Open the original & duplicate this layer

2. Make a new layer

3. Using the Rounded rectangle shape tool (fill pixels selected in the options bar) make a shape with the same dimentions as your original one - the amount of "roundness" can be varied using radius in the options bar.

4. Go back to your original layer (make sure this one is hightlighed) but point your mouse pointer to the new layer with rounded corners

5. Control+ click to get "marching ants"

6. Select inverse and hit delete.

7. You could now dicard your new layer
