How to make an ImageView with rounded corners?

In Android, an ImageView is a rectangle by default. How can I make it a rounded rectangle (clip off all 4 corners of my Bitmap to be rounded rectangles) in the ImageView?

Answer

This is pretty late in response, but for anyone else that is looking for this, you can do the following code to manually round the corners of your images.

This isn't my code, but I've used it and it's works wonderfully. I used it as a helper within an ImageHelper class and extended it just a bit to pass in the amount of feathering I need for a given image.

Final code looks like this:

package com.company.app.utils;

import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.Canvas;
import android.graphics.Paint;
import android.graphics.PorterDuffXfermode;
import android.graphics.Rect;
import android.graphics.RectF;
import android.graphics.Bitmap.Config;
import android.graphics.PorterDuff.Mode;

public class ImageHelper {
    public static Bitmap getRoundedCornerBitmap(Bitmap bitmap, int pixels) {
        Bitmap output = Bitmap.createBitmap(bitmap.getWidth(), bitmap
                .getHeight(), Config.ARGB_8888);
        Canvas canvas = new Canvas(output);

        final int color = 0xff424242;
        final Paint paint = new Paint();
        final Rect rect = new Rect(0, 0, bitmap.getWidth(), bitmap.getHeight());
        final RectF rectF = new RectF(rect);
        final float roundPx = pixels;

        paint.setAntiAlias(true);
        canvas.drawARGB(0, 0, 0, 0);
        paint.setColor(color);
        canvas.drawRoundRect(rectF, roundPx, roundPx, paint);

        paint.setXfermode(new PorterDuffXfermode(Mode.SRC_IN));
        canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, rect, rect, paint);

        return output;
    }
}

Hope this helps someone!
