You failed to mention anything about you document size and resolution. If you want good quality the document needs to have the number of pixels required for a high resolution high quality image. Text use vector graphic however you still need pixels a lot of pixels for high quality. Most likely you need more pixels for the quality you want to have.
Hi, the quality of the font rendering depends on the resolution of your image...
What's the resolution of your canvas? 72DPI? 300 DPI?
If it is poor, also the rendering could be poor...
I'm working at 72dpi, it has nothing to do with resolution. I know the image is pixelated, it's on purpose so you can see the difference.
See the difference from the first two lines compared to the checkmark phrases? The font is thinner due to an unknown bug occurring during the process i've described above. See in video:
All the text is poor because of the number of pixels Photoshop has to work with and the move you made most likely did not align with the the pixels grid so the anti-alias Photoshop did does not as good as the other poor text.
On displays resolution means nothing it is not used displays display the pixel printing it does matter DPI resolution is pixels size pxsel density 72 DPI is a low resolution image will not be as smooth and sharp as a highet pixel pixels are to big. You need smaller and many more pixels. Your using a large font size a thin sharp font with too few pixels. Once again It is all about resolution.
It also looks like you are not using text layers and you scaled up a small raster image up in size. Here is how it look using text layer at 72 DIP and 300DPI rember Displaye do not use image DPI settings the display pixels with their size pixels.
Thanks, JJmack, but it has nothing to do with that, sorry. I need to keep working on 72dpi as I'm developing interfaces for screens.
However, I might have narrowed down the problem. This only happens if:
- If I'm trying to Transform>Move folders with text blocks inside mixed with other elements (pasted vectors);
- And if I have anti-aliasing set to Mac or Mac LCD.
It does not happen when I'm using the old anti-aliasing methods. This surely seems like a bug, as this Mac / Mac LCD thing is new... Not sure...
Let me know if you find this problem too. Thanks for the help in advance.
I never use upsized and rasterized text layers, so no problem there. See the video i uploaded; you can see it is showing text layers, not raster layers.
As you can read above, the problem is most likely related with the new anti-aliasing modes: Mac and Mac LCD (talking about CC 2017). But clearly, there's a bug with these new aliasing engines. If the texts are transformed together with other objects, such as Illustrator vectors packed as Smart Objects, the font will re-render into another.
Can someone else replicate this problem in their computers? This way we'd be sure it's a bug.
What type of layer are the layers are the layer you pasted in?. Have you ever scaled them? Are they Text layers? Are they shape layers?
Your video shows your moving and scaling three layer groups each has two layers one being a text layer the other layer above the text layer. I can not tell much about theos layers the whole width of the layers palette is not even in the video. You video does not show where your problem is which is most likely poor raster layers. I nam noe tell what is what in you video.
Upload your PSD file to some web file sharing site and post a link to it here so we can have a look at it..
Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm encountering something similar where a font layer from an older file appears much different than a font layer in a new file.
Everything about the following text layer are identical. Same font, color, rendering style. There's no "faux bold" applied or anything else. The only difference is the one on the left was created in a file about 2 months ago and the one on the right is from a new file.
I don't have any solution for this. I just avoid transforming any folder that might contain a text layer with Mac LCD rendering, that's my temporary solution
