Hi!
I am only in Dreamstime since December.
My process is: drawing the outline done in CS2 or Illustrator10 (same problem), I save it there, and deposit another copy in CS2 Photoshop or 7(same problem). I do not necessarily see jagged edges in Ill. but sometimes. But when I open the file in PSP the jagged edges show up. Resulting sometimes in refusal. I know not to copy/paste. I just save the file in PSP from Ill. The jagged edges mostly occur when I make a straight diagonal line in Ill.
I have tried different line sizes but that does not seem to matter. I am not over-processing, all I do in PSP is apply color and texture etc.(the jagged edges show up sometimes before I do anything to the file and sometimes not till after). I do not size up or down in PSP, the files are both set in big format.
I tried DT's tech but did not get an answer, so I come to you who have experience with these programs. The tech told me they look at the files at 200%, so that helps a lot.
Any thoughts? Ideas? Can you help me?
many thanks

Thank you so much for your response Nospmisk.
I read both those links. So far, I don't think they answer my problem, but it gives me lots of things to check out, like saving the file in another format. So I am doing that. Thanks again

Still have jaggies. I researched those two links but did not find a solution. I really appreciate your help Nospmisk. I tried different formats etc. And the text was ok, interestingly.
Sometimes if in PSP I do "fill" several times instead of once, things smooth out. But that's just sometimes.
I am pulling my hair out!

Hello, just wondering: have you tried to tick the "Anti-alias" option before exporting your ai. file to .jpg format?

Hi Rolmat., thanks for asking.
Yes, I did be sure to "Anti-alias" the jpg. I am new to CS2 so there are a lot of little things like that I have to learn. Gotta keep my eyes open.
Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
