I have a psd that has rounded rectangle. I need to create a new rounded rectangle with the same radius. How do I determine the radius used on that said rounded rectangle?

I feel like this is such an awful question but thanks in advance for answering.

You can see the radius of a rounded rectangle by selecting the rectangle with the path selection tool (black arrow icon in the toolbar) and opening the properties panel. (see screenshot)

This will only work if the rectangle is still a vector shape and has not been rasterized.

  • I couldn't find properties on CS5, is there a way to see this window?

Select your rectangle with the direct selection tool (enter image description here), so you can see the vector nodes. Then zoom in CMD+= until you can see the pixel grid.

Now you can count the number of pixel rows between the two nodes, this is the value you need to use for your new rounded rectangle radius.

In this example the radius is 10px.
