How to Fix Jagged Edges in PhotoShop

Adobe Photoshop brings together dozens of photo retouching tools and digital artwork brushes to provide digital photographers and illustrators a wide range of options.

You can remove jagged edges by smoothing the entire photograph, or by smoothing the edges manually.

Manually Bluring Edges

Step

Load Photoshop by clicking on its icon.

Step

Open the image you wish to adjust.

Step

Select the Blur tool from the toolbox on the left-hand side of the page. The Blur tool icon looks like a grey tear drop.

Step

Trace the jagged edges with the blur tool while holding down the left mouse button. The blur tool softens rough edges only where you click and drag the cursor.

Bluring the Entire Photograph

Step

Load Photoshop by clicking on its icon.

Step

Open the image you wish to adjust.

Step

Click on “Filter” from the list of options at the top of the workspace. A sub-menu appears.

Step

Click on “Blur” in the Filter sub-menu to expand the blur filter list.

Step

Select either “Blur” or “Blur More” from the blur filter list. This applies a blurring effect to the entire image.
