    Alright, here at school I've been working on sprites for my Games Programming class. At first I was using a trial version of Paint Shop Pro 7, which is fine for spriting, and it has this feature called an Edge Preserving Smooth. I used this on sprites to smooth out the pixelated look they initially have, and everything was fine until the trial expired. So I got my Photoshop CS2 on this computer. However, in Photoshop CS2 I've been unable to find anything even vaguely similar to it, and I know that it has it because I've seen my friend run drawings through Photoshop and have them come out the exact same way, though I'm sure that it doesn't have the same name. Here's an example of Before and After the Edge Preserving Smooth in Paint Shop Pro 7 so you can see what I mean.

    Before:

    After:

    Does anyone know how this effect is achieved in Photoshop CS2? It sort of blends the pixels together so they appear smooth and shiny and stuff, instead of all pixelated and whatnot. I've been trying EVERYTHING and even searching Google all I ever find is ways to smooth skins, blend two textures together, and other generally useless information for what I'm doing.

    Nope. No idea. I'm watching the thread since I'd like to know too.

    The Paint Shop Pro features sounds brill.

    Would you use a combo of both programs? Do that smoothing in PSP, then open in PS
