How can I create an EXACT path from a selection with as FEW anchor points as possible using the 'Selection-to-Path Advanced Settings' dialog (https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-selection-dialog.html)?
I've been playing around with the options of this dialog for a while now, but all I can seem to produce is a path that follows my selection closely BUT has anchor points at every little corner of the selection. All these anchor points make it difficult to use the path in the next steps of my work.
How can I get a path that matches my selection precisely WITHOUT all these excessive anchor points? What are the specific settings that I have to use?
Many thanks for your help!
