    I just made an outline for icons and I'd like there to be a rounded edge inside each of the 4 corners, but I still need the center to be transparent, is there a tool I can use for this?

    Show guides and put four around the image to frame where you want the lines inside the frame to go.

    Choose eraser and make a dot in the top left corner where you want the curve to be. Then move the mouse to the bottom left near where you'd like the curve to be. Hold down the Shift + Mouse key and it should draw a straight line down. Do this to connect each corner and the inside will be rounded.

    rectangle tool to make the square, then use layer mask and draw the mask with the rounded rectangle tool. Use guides and rulers to get the size you want.

    don't use the eraser method and for the guides, just select the move tool and click and drag on the ruler, place the guide where you want it.
