(or as samjones>close as you can approximate with pixels) If you just want a rounded samjones>border, and if the blue isn't next to the edge of the screen, here's a samjones>cheap trick: I want to highlight the area of the image that will be displayed to someone in an experiment. I figured I would draw a circle around the area that I want to ask the user about. The line *could* be drawn around the circumference of the area (an irregular shape), but I thought it would be easier to draw a circle that encloses the entire area. It doesn't matter if a bit of the blue is cut off - the intent is just to focus the user's attention.
