By ditherering I assume you mean aliasing...

I'm also assuming you use photoshop 5.5.

Firstly before you type text in photoshop, make sure you select image/mode/rgb colour.

When using the text tool play with the anti alias setting to achieve the best results.

Also Bihle... You have two questions awaiting grades.

If you produce your images in RGB mode, then when you have finished resize and reduce colours your images you will look much better.

If you resize AFTER you've reduced the colours (saved as a 256 colour gif for example) then the image will suffer from the jaged edges.
