I'm pulling a brainfart right now...I can't figure out how to make my curves more defined...just look at this image:

I remember a setting that allowed your curves to be more...curvy...

LOL! Curves to me means a method of Color Correction!

I would use the pen tool/bezier tools...

I was using the elliptical tool. All was fine until I started adding blending options. Isn't there a way to change the curve rendering?

I don't know, it sounds like a resolution issue to me. The higher the resolution of your image, the less chance of this happening. What resolution is your image?

I (almost) never use the shape tools as I prefer to use the pen/paths tool, so I can't tell you if there is a way to change the curve rendering.

I had the same problem with photoshop elements. I don't use it much because I use GIMP. I don't know if it will help but the layer that is raggety can be blured with a border selection. Try the lowest setting that will get rid of the jagged border. I hope that give some help. I don't have the same problem in GIMP so I don't know why that happens in photoshop. Must be something a person is suppose to do first but I don't know what it is. Because I have seen smooth borders after an elipical selection in Photoshop.

just at the begginging you are starting to draw the circle press SHIFT while dragging the circle selection. This will creat a perfect circle

you might also want to anti-alias the edges so they don't look so jagged.

It looks to my eyes like you have attempted to increase the selection size using "Selection | Modify | Expand", instead of starting off with the correct size circle.

This 48KB .psd file should get you off in the right direction, and it's already mounted on a transparent background layer.

Note: To open this psd file in Photoshop, simply right-click the link and copy the URL and then select "Open" in Photoshop, the paste the URL into the address box, PS will download and open the internet-based file into your window.

Note: Remember that you can press the "Alt" key when you want to select a circle so that your selection starts from the center, NOT the upper left corner of the selection...makes it a bit easier to judge sizes.

Good luck.
