    I'm working on a document that is approx 5000 x 7000 pixels. I'm using path shape vectors to make triangles... in Photoshop, the edges are coming out straight, but when I zoom in too far or export the image as JPEG (or anything else) the following effect happens:

    WHAT CAN I DO!? I just want simple shapes that don't freak out with jagged edges!

    Could be a memory issue. As a test, try doing the same thing in a smaller document.

    The problem doesn't occur is MUCH MUCH MUCH smaller documents. However, it seems to only occur when I'm drawing non-square shapes.

    All I want are rasterized shapes =[

    After opening the PSD on a Mac that has 6GB of RAM as opposed to the 2 that by laptop has... it works well!! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Now I can rasterize these layers and get back to work! :D
