I know it's pathetic, but i really can't do this. I want to know how to select part of a picture and copy it onto another using photoshop 7 , but every time I try it I get really jagged edges, I've tried all the lassoes and everything i can think of, but the jagged edges just wont leave. Any hints for a tre' Pathetique would-be artist?

Well im o expert my self, but have you tried the "Magic Wand Tool"?(i think its called that, or similiar) That will select areas of a type, and may be what you need. Hope that helps.

You should erase the "jaggy edges" manually using the eraser tool, that' s what most people do.

I zoom right in on what I am working on and use the eraser tool , pixel by pixel. it can be slow an tedious but it gets the right effect Hope that helps :cya: zee :cya:

You could try using a bit of feathering with the lasso, but it makes the image of slightly less quality.
