Feather adjusting in Photoshop CS:2
One way I always use to cut out circles and squares is by using the Marquee Tool (Press the 'M' Key in Photoshop). After I have my outlined shape, I simply press the "delete" key to remove the excess areas. I usually wind up with a nice, clean shape, BUT, lately, the feather adjustments have somehow been screwed up as the outer edges of my shape are now "chippy" or "edgy" and not smooth like normal.
How can I re-adjust the feather back to normal? I know about going to "Select / Feather", but it never helps as putting it back to "0.2" (lowest setting) seems to be ineffective.

Sorry guys... I just discovered that I had the "Anti-alias" box checked. I guess I don't understand what this does. Anyone care to explain so that my post isn't useless?

I'm not sure, but I'll assume it's the same as "aliased" text.
Some of the pixels beside the letters become a combination of the colour of the letters and the colour of the background, so that the letters appear to be more smooth when viewed at a distance.
