Enabled aliasing makes your shape edges "smooth".

Let's say you want to draw an arrow. Here's a comparison of an arrow with enabled antialiasing (on the left) and disabled antialiasing (on the right).

Practical example:

Paint.NET - antialiasing enabled/disabled
Paint.NET - antialiasing enabled/disabled

If you zoom in on the arrowhead, you'll see the effect:

Paint.NET - antialiasing enabled/disabled
Paint.NET - antialiasing enabled/disabled
