Are you talking about the aliasing ("steps") in some lines, or about something else?

Which filter?

This said, you have lines that are about one pixel wide so they are always going to look a bit jaggy. This guy has the same problem and despite this he is quite successful Smile

On a screen (ie around 100PPI) there isn't nothing much you can do about that, except avoiding straight lines or large radius curves on which the aliasing is the most visible. If you intend to print, then your image is three times bigger (assuming you print at 300DPI), and the anti-aliasing is a smaller part of the line and becomes less visible.
