Adding rounded corners to UIImage

Recently I wanted to add rounded corners directly to an UIImage, I couldn't use a UIImageView, as this requires maskToBounds = YES; on, and as I had shadows in use, I couldn't set this.

So using the base work from ultie in the below code, I have added an extra function that was required (from and amended for iOS5.

static void addRoundedRectToPath(CGContextRef context, CGRect rect, float ovalWidth, float ovalHeight)
    float fw, fh;
    if (ovalWidth == 0 || ovalHeight == 0) {
        CGContextAddRect(context, rect);
    CGContextTranslateCTM (context, CGRectGetMinX(rect), CGRectGetMinY(rect));
    CGContextScaleCTM (context, ovalWidth, ovalHeight);
    fw = CGRectGetWidth (rect) / ovalWidth;
    fh = CGRectGetHeight (rect) / ovalHeight;
    CGContextMoveToPoint(context, fw, fh/2);
    CGContextAddArcToPoint(context, fw, fh, fw/2, fh, 1);
    CGContextAddArcToPoint(context, 0, fh, 0, fh/2, 1);
    CGContextAddArcToPoint(context, 0, 0, fw/2, 0, 1);
    CGContextAddArcToPoint(context, fw, 0, fw, fh/2, 1);

- (UIImage *) roundCorners:(UIImage*)img withRadius:(float)radius {
	int w = img.size.width;
	int h = img.size.height;
	CGColorSpaceRef colorSpace = CGColorSpaceCreateDeviceRGB();
	CGContextRef context = CGBitmapContextCreate(NULL, w, h, 8, 4 * w, colorSpace, kCGImageAlphaPremultipliedFirst);
	CGRect rect = CGRectMake(0, 0, img.size.width, img.size.height);
	addRoundedRectToPath(context, rect, radius, radius);
	CGContextDrawImage(context, CGRectMake(0, 0, w, h), img.CGImage);
	CGImageRef imageMasked = CGBitmapContextCreateImage(context);
	return [UIImage imageWithCGImage:imageMasked];

You would then call this in the code with the following:

UIImage *roundedImage = [self roundCorners:unroundedImage withRadius:5.0f]

I optionally added an extra line to - (UIImage *) roundCorners:(UIImage*)img withRadius:(float)radius so that it could double the changes for Retina Display devices:

if([[UIDevice currentDevice] retinaDisplayCapable]) { radius = radius*2; }

Hope this helps someone, any thoughts are welcome.
