    How can I improve the terrible results from Type in Photoshop?

    Stacey Bindman Level 1

      Hello all,

       

      I have a blog on which I need to add type to each and every photos for copyright purposes.

      The trouble is that the post photos are maxed out @ 144 dpi, and thus I use only sizes 6-8 for my fonts.

       

      The reason for the small font size is proportion. I don't want to have giant fonts for small-sized photos.

      I've attached a sample before rasterization and after illustraintg the use of this fiunction is next-to-useless.

       

      I've tried different permutations and combinations font,font style, crisp,smooth, shar, etc, and the results are always the same - bad.

       

      Either what I want can't be done, or I am doing something wrong.

       

      Please keep the answers just to Photoshop, as I don't have Illustrator!

      So all that vector-based to pixel-based discussion is irrelevant.

       

       

       

      Thanks,

       

      Stacey
