How to Smooth a Jagged Shape
Hi Friends,

Been working 12 hours now and hit this dead end. The smile on the face is too jagged. I tried Gaussian Blur but, while it smooths it, it also makes it blurry. Hahaha, who woulda figured that?

I have a feeling the best solution probably lies in selecting it and stroking it, but not sure...

Hoping to have this file uploaded for print tonight. THANK YOU GANG!

Hi ofnuts. I got that by copying it off the internet! I would have no idea how to make a smile from scratch. I think you found the easiest solution to be just making the smile rather than trying to fix the edge of the existing smile. Can't argue with that. Looks great!

One question - what is the blue line running down the middle of the image? I tried erasing, flattening, etc. but nothing would get rid of it... As always - thanks for all your help.

Yeah, just noticed at the same time you wrote, that when I exported and opened it as a .png, it does not show. It looks GREAT! I'm donating to the forum, unless you live in Boston - in which case I'll buy you a beer Smile

I contributed to the GNOME foundation. Thanks, again, ofnuts, for always being there.

You are probably right. Being a hopeless romantic, Paris is definitely on my list of top cities to visit with my wife one day! I'll get you whatever you want - but I'm drinking Belgian ale Big Grin
