It looks like you have anti-aliasing turned off.
The clouds are a nice touch! Dunno about the skeletal hands though, but nice ideas man!
And thanks Darren, where do i turn that mofo back on?
EDIT: I just checked, and i had the text on "sharp" format, so aa isn't the problem, i don't think any other suggestions as to why it's a bit broken up and pixelated on the text?
I think Darren's right, the anti-aliasing doesn't look like it's on.
anytime man, i enjoy doing this stuff so let me know if i can be of any help
How do i sort that out then? because as i said, the text was on sharp, so what else can i do?
Try changing it to "crisp" or "smooth".
Also, make sure you've got "Anti-alias" checked when you export the JPEG or PNG.
Hmmm... I'd probably use "smooth" but even still, the edges are more pixelated then can be resolved by that. Maybe make sure you have "anti-aliasing" selected when you go to export it.
Did it start doing that before or after you added the effect/glow on the text? Also, when you use it with no background or a different background does it still look that way? When you're actually in photoshop, do the letters appear like that? Just trying to troubleshoot it, if the other two suggestions don't do it.
EDIT: Darren beat me to it.
Yeah, it actually looks like that in photoshop too, not just when it's exported. I can't change the font now though because it was rasterized ages before the finished product..
Could it be the resolution? as in, the pixels per inch? What's a good one to have it at for like a standard 1024x768 pic?
Anything you're planning on printing or reusing should be in 300 pixels/inch.
Yeah that's what it's in.
Well, i've tried every conceivable angle on this fucker, and can't get rid of the pixelation
could it be something as simple as the resolution i'm working in? As in my screen resolution?
screen res wont affect a photoshop file. the pixelation is cause the anti-aliasing was off on the font properties when you rastered it. the only way to smoothly get rid of it is to re-create it.
Yeah, well, i just did, and it's still there It's not as bad, but it's still there.
lol i made that exact one about half an hour ago, but more blue-ish
I've pretty much decided that that's the actual logo from now on, which isn't much different from what i'd decided in the first place! but it's just getting cool backgrounds and stuff that i wanna concentrate on.
just need to sort this damn resolution problem
Well, if you remade the logo then the resolution should be okay and you can just paste it as a new layer overtop of your original background. I posted the one I did because the resolution should be sound, so you can always paste that in place and just recolor to whatever scheme you want.
What font is this, by the way?
Should be Times New Roman IIRC.
