    Is there a photo editing program that smooths the edges of pics? Like AA in games or some sort?

    Yeah most image editors that aspire to be half useful will have such a function buried somewhere.
    Sticking with the free stuff for now
    https://www.gimp.org/ definitely has an option/filter called anti alias, and also has ways for you to construct even better versions from the other filters if you think through it all (do an edge detect and use that as a mask for a slight blur set to a lower opacity sort of thing) or simply replicate existing anti aliasing techniques your graphics card might use (mip smoothing/mip mapping is just resizing up and down very quickly using basically anything other than nearest neighbour scaling)..
    http://www.getpaint.net/index.html should have something, some seem to favour a plugin for it. It is far simpler than GIMP and things like it but still very powerful.
    Another nice tool http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/pf7-en.htm
    Even something really simple like http://www.irfanview.com/ can do stuff http://www.firefromthesky.org/art/iview/trix.html

    Several of these programs are options in the installer at http://ninite.com if you would rather not mess around with downloading and installing them.

    I've tried all of them but they either don't do what they should or blur the whole pic and i just want to kill the roughness around the pics.

    Selecting and working with selections is part of image editing once you leave windows paint behind I am afraid.
    2 minutes with GIMP gave me the attached image.

    Um.. ...this soft seems kinda interesting actually.. Not sure if it smooths out the image only after scaling it up, but I'll end up at least comparing it with Photoshop's scaling modes at some point

    How you found about this?

    Just heard about it on some forum. The results blow Photoshop's scalers out of the water.
    Anyone who wants to try it out, there's an easy to use GUI here.

    How's this looking?

    I've tried a lot of stuff, from making the outline a gradient that goes radially black -> dark grey, I've tried manually smoothing it with an eraser (turns out my motor skills aren't that good), I tried this other technique called edge refinery and although I think it made it better the difference isn't big at all, I'll try again

    Here it is anyway
