Last night I was working on some graphics for a website that I'm creating. I finished up the layout and previewed it with semi-final artwork. There was just something cold about its presentation, too many harsh edges and straight lines. I really liked the layout but I needed to tweak the artwork - which meant that I had to soften and round their edges. Now normally this would be a repetitive, possibly tedious task in Photoshop. However, after some googling I found two websites that really helped me out. Vector masks are my new best friend!
