I'm building a website. For part of this website I want to have a picture that has rounded corners.
If I insert the picture normally then it will remain rectangular- the rounded corners being ugly white corners around the image that show up really obviously against the web page's background.
I could of course use some simple css and do border-radius: x;.
But this is graphic design, not web design. I'm wondering whether it is possible to do something within my graphics program to create truly transparent corners?
Following the cheat route of simply painting the corners the colour of my background is also not an option (assume I have a gaudy multi coloured background where the position of the image is open to change).
Unfortunately I only have illustrator and not photoshop which may limit my options here but I do wonder whether it is possible at all?
