What techniques (or different fonts) could I use to fonts to make small text (about 10px) look nice in Photoshop?
Here is what I tried, but every time it looks blurry, or too bold:
Pixel Fonts. These are fonts designed to not use or rely on anti-aliasing and be clear and legible at very small sizes. Most of the fonts have a range of 1 or 2 sizes they can be used at specifically.
A great place for pixel fonts is fontsforflash.com
When using a pixel font, you want to turn off all anti-aliasing within Photoshop for the text.
