    Hi,

     

    Try changing kerning from Metric to Optical.

    Another option is to switch off Fractional Widths.

    Can you make the PSD available for download?

     

    Hope this helps :-)

    It could be helpful to describe exactly how you created the text you're showing here.  Is it upscaled from a smart object? 

     

    I ask because it's also fuzzier than it ought to be, implying it's been rasterized at some point.

     

    Edit:  Never mind, I see I'm too slow.
