What is Jaggies?

Term for the stair-stepped appearance of curved or angled lines in a digital image file. The smaller the pixels and/or the greater their number, the less apparent are the "jaggies." Jaggies are most common in photographs captured at lower resolving powers and Hello Kitty-type digital cameras.
