Thread: Jagged stroke line around image

  1. #1

    Jagged stroke line around image

    Hi I have put a black border around this image to better portray the jagged line I am getting when applying a stroke to this image. Is there anyway to avoid this? I used the pen tool to get the shape. Thanks

    wotnow, welcome to the Café.

    My first choice would be to use a vector program such as Illustrator to create that simple shape.

    Nice crisp edges, resolution free, can resize, no jaggies and easy edit.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi thanks for your suggestion .. I am not so familiar with Illustrator but I had a go and when I saved it as a gif and then pasted it over my photo .. I had the same issue.

    Hi wotnow,

    Don't save it as a gif, copy the whole shape to your clipboard > Open your image you want to use in photoshop > then paste the shape as a smart object.

    Hi Thanks for the update but like I mentioned before, I am not very familiar with Illustrator. Cannot find copy to clipboard in the file menu and the only thing close is save a copy which creates an ai file on desktop which I then tried using place command and nothing. Is it not possible to create this shape in photoshop CS4?
