    Default how can i make this image less jagged?
    hi guys im trying to make my first iphone theme but the icons are not very sharp
    is there anyway of fixing this with photoshop? im very new so go easy on me if this is very obvious.


    here is what i want sharpened


    what is circled in red i want "sharpened" as it looks jagged

    same with the circle on this


    what i mean by sharpened is to make it appear straight/smooth not jagged

    thanks for the help in advance!

    what I would do is try to draw it in vector , then u can resize and not loos sharpness , or try and convert your image to vector... Resizing non-vector (rastor) results in pixalation

    thanx button in advance LOL

    Try using a drawing program like corel draw of illustrator and draw your image lager than 57 x 57 pixels and save as with a resolution of 600 DPI and save as a png. Then open in photoshop and resize the image to 57 x 57 and save as a png.

    I would just trace them in Adobe Illustrator. From there you can change the size without loosing any resolution. You can also change the colors around or add some text of your own!
