Please, can anyone give me a really simple step by step to achieve smooth edges

missing something. I just don't understand how to make the edges of my image
smooth? This footprint is a prime example of something I want to smooth out
around the edges, but it just isn't working whenever I follow instruction I can
find online. Can anyone please help me? Thank you so much.

I think we have a question for you: how did you create that? Because it's likely more an error you do than a wrong technique.

If you want smooth outlines, you should create them using the path tool <http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-using-paths.html>, then create a selection from the path (Select>From path) and then bucket-fill the selection. With the path tool, the smoother lines are those created with the least nodes, and where the tangent handles on each node are symmetrical.

A path done using you existing foot as a guide, then used for a selection and bucket-filled:
