Picture that needs perfect curved edges

As you can see in this picture, the edges are very rough because ive used the the brushes with background color. What I want to achieve is the perfect curve for this angle. I tried to edit the brush settings but it's too complicated for me. Is there any easy way to do this that doesnt involve creating the curve with a mouse because that seems impossible for me.

    I wonder what you mean by your last sentence, because you are going to have to use a mouse, if you want this done. It won't magically draw itself. What you should use is the Pen tool

  • It is near impossible if you use a mouse and a brush... so I see that point... it's very easy with the mouse and the Pen Tool as Joonas suggests.

As Joonas noted in his comment, use the pen tool to create precise curved shapes. The pen tool uses vectors - mathematically defined shapes that can be styled by fills and strokes - to create precise artwork that can be scaled to any size without loss of resolution. They are resolution-independent - although when displayed on screen you may still see "pixelation" as this is an artifact of your screen rendering a vector graphic and not of the actual vector graphic itself.

In Adobe's software packages (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop), these vector tools use bezier formulas to determine the curves - thus you may hear them referred to as bezier curves, bezier points, etc.
