While I'm still waiting for the update to photo so I can use it with designer :rolleyes: , mainly the perspective tool in photo, I have started trying to use photo for text but photos text tool has jagged edges, don't know why, while designer has smooth ( I use them both the same way, the only way as far as I can see). I need the perspective tool for 3D effects but I can't use it anyhow with this problem. (see screen shots taken from both apps)

I thought it might be the font style but I've tried changing it in both photo & designer & it's no different.

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

See right side is very jagged in photo.                                            Same 3D box, front M also jagged but not as bad as side (zoomed in view with photo)

M from designer is smooth (see below)                        Zoomed in on M with designer.

Thanks for the reply.

 

Can't find pixel preview mode at the moment to see what you mean.

I always use 300 dpi to start a new file.

 

Have to admit, still a bit lost....Looks like I need to clue myself up more...

 

This is the 3d box exported as a PNG file, & the file was set up with 300 DPI. Still looks a bit rough.

The file size I set was 800 px x 500 px.                                   The file info says

Yes, the file was a screen shot of the info from the saved png file.

So I'll have to make the file bigger then if it gets rid of the jagged edge..

 

No problem, I just won't use the pixel preview  :D

 

Thanks for your help...
