Default Help with Gimp lasso tool

I love editing pictures in Gimp, my biggest problem is getting the lasso tool to make clean cuts, I have heard everyone simply say to be more patient and make more points when cutting something out but is there any filters that smooth a selection out. I find that alot of my images are pixalated on the edges, or have sharp points all over. AntiAliasing does not work, and I would love to have something that smooths over my edges or and tips so that I can get prettier cuts out of shops. Anyways thanks again.

Could you brush the edge and make them not so rough?

Zoom way in and then make more points with the lasso tool, it'll look a lot smoother when you zoom out. I assume you are cutting something out? I prefer to use the eraser tool to erase the parts of the image I don't want, again, zoom in and use a small brush and take your time.
