For starters, I don't know much about Photoshop and I have CS6.

Anyway, you see this outlined sketch?

Open:

See how the lines are jagged and whatnot... not very smooth. How do you make them smoother? People create vectors in Photoshop.

I know I saw a tutorial on the internet somewhere but it wasn't really for beginners.

That's not jagged! The people who makes perfect lines often use their tablets and trackpads to do so...

No, it's actually really jagged. I have the same problem on CS5, too. I've been looking up tutorials on how to fix it but I haven't found any good ones. :c If I do find one, I'll show you it (hopefully cs5 and cs6 won't be that difficult to translate). aaa

I agree with Len. You should check up tutorials on YouTube, they are REALLY helpful!

Use a drawing tablet, that might work. And google about how to activate pen pressure, that will work!
I have CS6, and I understand its hard

I already use a tablet, even though it's not the best (Bamboo wacom model MTE-450). I want a tablet monitor

I know I need to look up more tutorials for Photoshop, I'll do that sometime. I'll try the pen pressure thing though.

Also you should use a certain brush to activate it. You notice how there are 3 different round brushes? Use the 2nd or 3rd one

I've poked around some forums and other sites, and the main thing to do is draw the lineart in another program (ex. adobe illustrator or SAI) and then transfer it into Photoshop. Not sure if this works, as I've never tried it. `A` Good luck, though!

I'm pretty sure it will work if you can make good lineart with the program (and make the background transparent).

So what tool does SAI have that makes lineart better because I read something on dA that was like "Photoshop is a superior painting program but SAI has line ____"

SAI has line stabalizer. It basically slows down your movement (no matter how fast you mess around with your pen), which makes it like 500% easier to lineart.

Can you show me where to activate the pen pressure because I googled it but I couldn't find anything that made sense to me (with all those Phtoshop versions ugh).

You can just say something like Window>Color>Derp


@Len oh yeah that makes sense.

Nope not really, Some use a tool to move a line.
