Use Round Corners in Adobe Illustrator CS6
Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to apply "Round Corners" to a shape in Adobe Illustrator CS6 in Windows 7.
- 5We click the object to select it. We will be able to edit it. We can use other selection tools if they work better in selecting a specific part of an object or group of objects. However, as we are rounding the corners, "Selection Tool" should do a job that is fine enough. When our object has been selected, a blue frame will appear. The corners will be highlighted. This means that the object is ready for editing.
- 9We check "Preview" in the box. We will be able to view the preview. It is recommended to do this to see how effects change our objects. We will see straight away that the corners will be rounded. This will be achieved by checking the "Preview" option. However, that will not mean that the changes will have been applied.
- 12Then, we click "OK" to apply the changes. We will see that the corners will be rounded. The higher the radius number is, the more dramatic the "Round Corners" effect is. This is a very useful tool if we are creating a frame or even a poster with different boxes and borders. Sometimes, an image looks more professional with even slightly rounded corners. "Round Corners" can be also very useful when die cutting after printing the document. "Round Corners" can have a nice effect on business cards, leaflets, and so on.
