I can clip an image and make chamfers on the corners but is there a way I can make fillets?

You could create a polygon with a high number of sides to simulate an arc.
Then run Image clip - new polygon and select the endpoints of the lines to create a new clipping polygon.
Attached is a quick example. I didn't create very many edges to approximate arc to save time.

Alternatively I guess I could have used the divide command to place a bunch of nodes for selection on an arc.

I tried again using Divide this time.
Can get good results with just 4 or 5 points on arc. Use more if you need it smoother.
