Save for the web jagged fonts nightmare

Apr 17, 2013 2:41 PM

Hi

Can't export anti-aliased smooth fonts using save for the web. The fonts are jagged.

How can save for the web the same smooth quality that I see on the screen?

Using Illustrator CS6 on Mac OS X 10.8.3

Thanks.

    when you save it as a jpeg or png, you are converting it to a raster image but it shouldn't be too noticeable unless you are enlarging it. Can you post some pictures?

    In the Save for Web&Devices dialog box, Set this dropdown to Type

    What happens if you use Export instead of Save for Web&Devices? You can save with a higher ppi instead of the 72 that you will get from Save for Web.

    What is the size of the art and are you enlargening it in the browser using CSS or manually adjusting the size?

    In both cases I am using save for web. In the first instance I am exporting at 100% size, 200% size in the next instance. If you are resizing in CSS/manually, export from Illy at the desired size.
