I am making online virtual "name tags" for my coworkers. I am using php/mysql with GD to put their names on a name tag image. I have been getting complaints that the text on the badges is blurry especially at lower resolutions (I didnt notice because I'm half blind and at 1280x1024) the ONLY solution I've seen is to put the text on an image of 2x the size and reduce it. This seems like a clever solution, but not something I want to do unless I have to. If it IS the only solution I would appreciate some advice on simple formulas to change how my text is positioned so that It will work on the doubled image.
I am using the gd with php and the version is bundled (2.0.23 compatible)
