    Guys,

    I'm new to photoshop and have really enjoyed getting to know it over the last few weeks - I'm just starting to see the huge potential it has.

    One silly little thing is bothering me tho! When drawing an ellipse I can never get perfectly smooth curves. If the ellipse is put onto a coloured background I get an ugly border around the shape - anyway I can get a perfectly smooth curve?

    Not sure what you mean by border, but you may be referring to the aliased edges of shallow curves? Like they are jaggy. This can happen to thin lines when they are a certain angle (namely close to horizontal and to a lesser extent close to vertical).

    that what you mean?

    guess which one's me!

    So. With 1px lines, it's unavoidable. You can increase the thickness, I would use a layer style to do this.
