The crop tool does not provide that function so you have to use  another approach, here is one approach:


Make  sure your image is a regular layer, not a background layer (double click on the layer if it is a background layer and then OK)
Select the pen tool and then  make the following changes in the options  bar at the top of the window
      Select the paths option
      Select the rounded rectangle tool
      Specify the radius of the rounded corners you want
Draw out your crop rectangle
Right clic

Use an image file?

No!

Actually, I don't know that it can be done.

Susan, you might want to save the cropped image as a PNG to preserve the transparency..

Images are always fully rectangular. rounded corners are just a transparency blending effect and require an image format supporting transparency, clipping masks or Alpha channels as well as whatever app is displaying the images actually interpreting that info...

I seem to recall that using the Marquee Tool in the past resulted in rounded corners. Unwelcome, and there was a workaround for it, but can that be employed in today's version of PS?

Using the Marquee tool with a degree of feather will produce rounded corners but there is no real control over what you get.

The Rounded Rectangle has lots of settings in the Options bar for fine tuning.

Hi William Dorsten, This is my own fast easy way to get ovals and round corners. I take the circle selection tool and run it over the object or photograph I want rounded. I select that shape of the object and save a copy. Then I go to a new file or layer and paste it there. Try it. For a square, you run the oval size over the edges until the corners are rounded as I want them. Best regards,JHrounds 4 U.jpg the degree you want.
