    IF you look closely you can see some jaged lines, I had no problems like this ever.. Anyone know why? BTW The Canvas is 5000x5000

    I installed some new fonts yesterday..

    EDIT: Got a solution it was the aa thing in the type bar it was set to none instead of smooth

    Try Rasterizing the font. Check the dpi also.

    Thanks guys got a solution, the aa thingy thats has the options, smooth, strong crisp and none was set to none which caused it to look jagged, I wonder how it changed by itself..

    I always think vector for logo, you never know what i may be needed for! the last thing you want is to make a 300dpi logo in photoshop and then get asked the best way to have it blown up to the size of a wall!
     
  9. always vector for a logo never photoshop!

    still try and use vector for the logo, The smooth, crisp or sharp option is not that cool.

    Well I did give them the logo in 5000x5000 and 300dpi so they should be able to get that on the biz card

    Aaagh, Arial? For a logo? Stop, buy Helvetica or use a proper font.
