Our computer is used by several people and somehow the rectangle marquee tool lost its square corners and now only shows rounded corners.

How to change the marquee tool back to the square corners?

Anyone know that answer?

Dammit, I hate when I lose my square corners. Check in your other coat; that's where mine always end up. – Lauren Ipsum Aug 2 '12 at 3:18

Maybe someone's added feathering to the marquee tool in the options bar?

That would be it, no question in my mind. – Alan Gilbertson Sep 9 '12 at 1:56
Spot on - just worked for me. thanks – Paul Sargeant May 28 '13 at 10:59

Here's how I did it:

1] Create a rounded corner shape with the rounded rectangle tool.

2] Rasterize it.

3] Load Selection.

4] Delete shape. (You should still see the selection.)

5] Click on picture layer.

6] Click on Add Layer Mask.

You are welcome. :)
