The process of removing or reducing the jagged distortions in curves and diagonal lines so that the lines appear smooth or smoother.

Search google for how to work with it on your application.

Hey really helpful thnkx!! Laughing even though i knew it as something else!!!

Just to clarify, it is a graphics term which applies to text generally but can be for any vector graphics. It basically slightly shifts pixels so that they are slightly blurry, sharp, etc. Photoshop provides a good way to create this effect. Smile

Great Explainations. Thanks. Seems I asked the question and went on to try and find an answer elsewhere. So now I understand what it is how do I apply it?
Thing is I'm Using The Gimp and I am finding it difficult to apply anti aliasing to sme fo my graphics. Using the magic wand tool I can select the text in a graphic and there is this check box fo anitaliasing But I see no apply button or an thng that tells me the edges ahve been "anitaliased" When I load the file in my page They really don;t appear much different.
So the real question is... How do I apply this technology to my files?

I think (correct me if wrong) that is one of the features Gimp doesn't include.

You're wrong. Gimp include this feature.

That may or may not be true, I know people that swear by GIMP, even ones that have the possibility to use photoshop.

Anyway, GIMP: $0 | Photoshop: c. $500

So, even if your argument is valid, photoshop is a bit out of the budget for those who like to aquire thier software legally.

Back on topic, though; have you tried searching google? I don't know how good they are, but I can see a few things that might be promising.

hehe.. yeah I havent met a photoshop user yet that actually paid for it... but im not in the professional world.. so thats not saying much. I will check GIMP out. I'm using a diffrent free program PAINT.NET, maybe GIMP will be better.
