I am trying to make oval thumbnails from images in CS2. Is it possible to produce a final image that is not square or rectangular. I would settle for a rectangle image with a mask (or something), making the corners transparent for the same effect, but can't seem to do that either. Any help would be appreciated.

I would do it this way, but Like in Photoshop there are a million ways to do the same thing.

1. make your background a layer
2. select the section of the image you want to do oval.
3. invert your selection (command-I on Mac, and control-I on PC)
4. Delete the outer image.
5. Save for web to the resolution you want and as a PNG file with transparent background that will allow you to place it in a web page and retain your oval image.

If you just want an oval image then now all data is square. from the smallest of pixels.

Open an image.

Create a new layer.

Use the marquee tool to make an oval on the new layer.

Fill the oval with black.

Duplicate the original image and place it on top of the oval on the layers pallete (ie. the layers pallete should show the original, then a layer with the oval, then a dupe of the original on top)

Right click on the top layer in the layers pallete and choose "create clipping mask"

Turn off the eyeball to the bottom layer.

You can then drag the oval layer or the top photo around with the "drag" tool to get it exactly how you want it.

Go to layers and click "merge visible" and you will have an oval shaped photo on a clear background.

Save as a GIF preserving the tranparency, or any other method that preserves the transparency.
