make fonts to render "nice" with antialiasing
Posted on 2002-03-09
I'm interested in any hints on how to make good looking small sized text as GIF in Photoshop.
Using the different kinds of antialiasing is OK, but often the result on small fonts are not very good. I even tryed to use double layers with a copy of the text above... the the text get a bit more "saturation" but still often sort of jigged. Changing the transparency on the top layer gives a bit better result, but i'm still not really satisfyed.
I have seen sites where the GIF-Text is extremely sharp and still very_very small.
Any hints, any links to fonts that are especially good for this purpose? I have the Adobe webTypes - but would be glad to find something "new"!
