I have an image in GIMP that has a black on white edge and it is very obviosly pixalated. How do I throw in shades of grey to smooth it out so it doesn't look pixalated?

There are lot's of videos on YouTube that can help you out with GIMP. Search for what you're looking for and watch a few.

With the magic wand, select all the "white" part of the picture.

Then, under selection, pick "Feather". Then go to filters, and blur that selection until you're satisfied with the results.

I usually make the background transparent before, so that I can paste the picture unto any background after that.
