    Some help

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone could help with the image I have below. I want to smooth out the edge of the image, does anyone know how to accomplish this through photoshop or fireworks?

    If that's a font, just redo it with anti-aliasing turned on. If it's not, just trace it with the pen tool in Illustrator/Photoshop/whatever program you're using.

    It's not a font. I actually tried to look to see if it was but can't find it. Thanks, I will try tracing it with a pen

    You can also do this (I call it my quick and dirty method):

    select the dark part of the image
    do a low blur
    modify your selection with Smooth (in the selection menu)
    Inverse the selection
    delete.

    I tried this but it only helped slightly...

    When you mean low blur... do i just go to filter -> blur?

    Also when I choose Smooth in selection what radius should I have.

    Yep, also try the Gaussian blur. Use a low blur setting though - you'll have to experiment, it takes different settings for different objects.

    Again, experiment. Some objects work with a 5 pt, some take a 20.
