So...when the only resources you have are square, ordinary images, having such a library in Livecode can be hugely helpful... add to that, the use case may be multiple images over many cards ( or set for whatever purpose), making an LC library/process that can loop, way, way more efficient than doing these in GIMP of Photoshop, unless you want to go through the headached of setting up and recording actions etc.

Well: Bonkers or not, I am on holiday for the next 4 days so I shall TRY 
(note caveat) to implement a happy "corner-round-er-er"
in a Livecode stack to keep your volunteers from going any more bonkers 
than they already are to volunteer to work on such
socking great sets of images.

Watch this space:                                     : end of the space 
to be watched.
