    how do i make smooth shapes in photoshop? as often, unless their square, the shapes tend to get blurry...as far as ive understood it, photoshop got a basic vector support? is the way to go to make the shapes in illustrator, and import it in photoshop, or is there an easy way.. i got an description of how to do it before, but i tried it, and prolly did it wrong..so basically i didnt understand it...

    help plz

    He's talking about making vectors from bitmaps, not improving bitmaps.

    I'm assuming so he can make vector images that scale well.

    this is what ya need to do, when making a shape in PS you need to have anti-alising on... I would make my shapes in Illustrator and then save them as eps files and open them in PS... then change the color to RGB to get good color, if you try to change the size u need to go back to illustrator and change the size, cause pixels are diffrent from vector art as PS is pixel based and AI is vector "points"..

    I seriously doubt that he will move from a combination of over $1000 in professional graphics programs to a $0.02 POS included in Windows.

    I would say try to use the path tool in photoshop, which is used exactly the same way as in illustrator. Once you ahve done the shape you want, go to the Path panel and at the bottom, select create a selection from path. It's the dotted circle. Then fill the selection with the color of your choice and there you go, you got your shape !

    Hope this helps
