hey, for some reason when i make a document below 1000 ish px the quality doesn't seem that good (im a complete noob, sorry if this is a dumb question)

This is a 512 x 512 px document and when i make a shape and fill it, it looks fuzzy around the edges (this happens when i add a picture too but the whole picture is fuzzy instead of just the edges)

These are the settings i used, did i do something wrong? or is it supposed to be like that 

 

Sorry again if its a dumb question, thanks :D

500 pixels is rather small. 

 

A monitor is typically 1920 x 1080, so only a quarter of the width. 

 

For litho printing, 500 pixels is only just about good enough for a 2" wide picture.

it was fine on gimp and ps though, are you sure it's supposed to be like this? i don't mind too much, doing like 2000 px and exporting as 500 px has a nice result, i could always do it that way, just wondering if there was an easier way, thanks tho xD

Draw a vector shape.

 

You can draw it one inch wide, print it one mile wide and the edges will still be smooth.

 

Resolution independence :D

Draw it as a shape and if you export to JPEG it will be flattened to pixels on output.

 

one 512 pixel shape, as a JPEG
