    Jagged curves/slanted lines -Photoshop?

    Maybe a simple solution to this and if so, lemme have it!

    How do you get around the jagged effect that are evident on angled (and curved also) lines drawn in PhotoShop?

    are you drawing them on a vector layer with the pen tool/vector shapes tool? If so, it'll be clean when you prinit, even if it does look a little jagged on screen.

    No haven't experimented with vector layer yet.

    I was just using the Polygonal lasso tool to draw a shape with angles. Then adding Stroke of 1 point in the Style options.

    I would assume the simple answer is to enable antialiasing on the line/shape tool. I'm assuming here since I don't use PS, but PSP is like a sister program to it, and if I get jagged lines on curves, it's usually cause antialiasing is off. (change color depth to 16million or more otherwise the option may not be available)

    Actually upon Kelli's response, I tried using the vector pen tool to draw the shape and had a MUCH better result than the lasso-then-stroke method. Thanks Kelli.

    Also thanks for the reply aaron, yes, sometimes the antialiasing is the culprit but I always make sure mine is checked when doing this type of task, so in this case that wasn't the problem. Definitely a good habit to check this option though.
