    I downloaded GIMP a little while ago trying to scale down some Buuf icons I found online ... the only problem is that when I scale things down they get all edgy and I don't like that .. so what I'm wondering is if there is a way to scale images without it being all grainy. Thanks for any help.

    I've attached the pics

    Once you've scaled it use the blur tool a little. Just play with it.

    Ok maybe I'm not doing it right but I've tried the blur tool .. I click the droplet thing .. click around the edges I want blurred and nothing at all. Undo doesn't even show that I've done any blurring actions.
