Font smoothing in the Book module

Hi everyone,


I use the Book module and export the resulting pages to jpeg files. Any text (text field, page caption, photo caption) is rasterized when zooming to 1:1 on the exported jpeg file. The pattern on the font edges is sharp without any smoothing (only black or white pixels, no shades on edges). In the printed pictures one can still see this pattern, it is really ugly.

I never saw this when usig photoshop or any of those simple online programs for preparing photobooks.


In the "Book Settings" I set the same resolution as I use for printing by Blurb-like printing companies, e.g., 400ppi/dpi.

Of course, the "solution" would be to set much higher ppi in the "Book Settings". But then propably the export sharpening does not work properly.


Do you observe the same behavior? How do you solve it?


Thanks a lot!
