Set rounded corners on UIimage in UICollectionViewCell in swift

I have a simple problem that I cannot find a solution to on google, the docs or here.

I have a Collectionview in my view controller. I have created a custom cell, DescriptionCell, that contains a UIImage. I want this image to have rounded corners. However, I don't know where to set the cornerradius on the UIImage layer. I have tried in the cells' awakeFromNib method, in the delegate method CellForRowAtIndexPath and overriden LayoutSubview in the cell but it does not work.
Where should I put the code to set the radius for the UIImage?

To specify, I know how to create rounded corners of a UIImage. But if it is a subview of a Collectionview cell, I do not know where to set the cornerradius.

Here is code for my descriptionCell

class DescriptionCell: UICollectionViewCell {
@IBOutlet weak var mImage: UIImageView!

override func awakeFromNib() {
//mImage.layer.cornerradius = 5
//Does not work, the image is still square in the cell

And in the cellforRowAtIndePath

func collectionView(collectionView: UICollectionView, cellForItemAtIndexPath indexPath: NSIndexPath) -> UICollectionViewCell {
var cell = collectionView.dequeueReusableCellWithReuseIdentifier("descriptioncell", forIndexPath: indexPath) as! DescriptionCell
//cell.mImage.layer.cornerradius = 5
//Does not work, the image is still square in the cell
return cell

Thanks in advance!


Well you're using part of the code from the answer you said you were using. the other part is imageView.clipsToBounds = true

Update your awakeFromNib like this:

override func awakeFromNib() {
    mImage.layer.cornerRadius = 5 
    mimage.clipsToBounds = true

To make it a circle you need to set cornerRadius to half of the square height. In your cellForItemAtIndexPath add these lines:

cell.mImage.layer.cornerRadius = cell.mImage.frame.height/2


To avoid layoutSubviews from being called twice, override layoutSubviews in your DescriptionCell class and put the code there:

override func layoutSubviews() {
    mImage.layer.cornerRadius = mImage.frame.height/2
