I imported an image from a digital camera into Photoshop but the it is very pixilated.
How can I create a smooth line to the image? Thanks.

How many pixels wide and tall is your image?

Well, there's your answer.

Your image is lo-resolution. Not meant for printing.

You need to have your camera settings to the highest possible resolution...
Then you can zoom in and it won't look pixelated.

640 x 480 @ 72 dpi (dots per inch) gets you an image sized at 8.8" x 6.6" inches.

But for your picture to look decent for printing (off of your desktop printer) it should
ATLEAST be 150 dpi, which at 8.8" x 6.6 would be 1320 x 990.

If you were printing professionally (on a press) your image needs to be 300 dpi...
or 2640 x 1980 pixels... to get you an idea.

hope this helps.

C.R.
