I could not find any reference to if, or how, you blur the edges of the SVG lines to create a better visual effect. I use Inkscape as a called process to do this rendering and the benefits of a pure PHP solution is huge. But not at the expense of visible pixalation in the result.

Inkscape does a very good job of rendering to an image.

Maybe I didn't look hard enough...

Hi, it's actually a good question!

Unfortunatly, I'm using GD which is kind of limited.

With this native library, we need to choose between style (thickness for example) and antialiasing (see here : ). I chose the first one over the other since, in my test case, I needed big stroke and I was not very interested in smoothness.

I may add a flag to allow to choose between the two.

In the meantime, if you need it, it's the `//imageantialias($this->_image, true);` in the `toImage` method to uncomment.
