XF 1.2 Node Icons and Rounded Corners

I'm not particularly good with Photoshop (unless it's tweaking pictures I've taken with my DSLR).

I've had a go at making some node icons for my new forum, but I'm not happy with the rounded corners on them.

What is the best way in getting the rounded corner to be a little smoother, as it looks a bit too sharp for my liking?

Have you tried applying border radius to the square image?
Not yet, I'm still playing about with CS6. I did the current rounded corners by manually doing the line with a pencil tool. I wasn't sure how best to draw the outline edge on it (darker blue) to round it off more (was trying for 3px rounding)

If you want to do it as an image, create a circular image using the same colours but with a transparent background and overlay the corners on the square icon.
