    Hey,

    I'm having this problem when I start to draw out my layouts with the polygonal lasso. The attached is what is happening to my elections and I don't know what to do to fix them. I have tried a blur but that usually makes it too soft, I have tried an outer glow with the same outcome. Anyone know how to fix this?

    (I am using Photoshop 7)

    Well gaussian blur 0.1 should still keep sharp enough, or you could use the blur tool on the lightest exposure.

    select the polygonal lasso tool, then check 'anti-aliased'

    Alright:

    Riat_Sila: The blurring method doesn't work and the gaussian blur at 0.1 does nothing and at 0.3 it becomes too blurred

    gabe89: I have anti-aliasing on, I want it smoother though

    So far I have tried using channels to fix it but this only seems to work when filling the space with black. I guess my solution is to remake with a larger size and resolution, then scale down. Will that work?

    If worst comes to worst I will just change the degree of the line and hope that makes it better.

    I think you should make that image with rectangles then strectch them into the shape you want, that should be much smoother
