Piping Tips (PSD Template)

Does anyone have any tips on how to get clear placket piping on jerseys using a PSD photoshop editor? I'd like to update my MLB jerseys and tackle all of the Minors, but I'm a bit discouraged with the current quality of the piping on my jerseys.

I use Paint Shop Pro myself. When I use a PSD template the vector information can be lost. This applies to fonts, shapes and lines. The vector object is converted to a raster format. You loose the ability to resize or edit the object. The anti-aliasing can be lost so the lines look jagged. My only solution is to trace the line using anti-aliasing and save the layer as a vector object and save the file in the native PSP format (PSP or PSPImage). Then delete the old raster layer. I can then easily edit the lines used for the piping. Maybe this will apply to you.

Unfortunately it doesn't. I have a Mac so the best option Ive found so far is GIMP, which is what im using now.

I have GIMP installed just in case I have to open GIMP files and convert them to PSD. GIMP allows you to create paths which you may be able to use to trace the original piping. PSP is so much easier to do this with. I found that creating a straight line in GIMP is cumbersome. Maybe a GIMP user can explain how to do this or try searching for tutorials (that's how I found out to make a straight line myself). Maybe you can use Paint.net if you are able to run Windows programs on your Mac. I used Paint.net to easily make a straight or curved line in a few seconds. Paint.net needs a plugin to open PSD files.
