Has anyone dealt with this issue before? For some reason, my text on Photoshop is not smooth at all, no matter what font is picked.

If anyone has any tips, would be highly recommended.

  • There are others who want this, see: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/117957/… There' s an explanation, too.

  • So put anti-aliasing on. It causes some fuzziness, if the resolution is low as you seem to have.

Select your text then hit Ctrl+T to bring up the 'Character' panel and play with the anti-aliasing option until it looks right. Probably need to choose the 'Smooth' option.

  • Before Googling I looked at this very menu, expecting to see something about "Anti-aliasing". Who knew it would be random drop-down labeled "a a", and set to "None"? Maybe I'm not patient enough, but I feel like this could be made slightly more clear. Maybe instead of "None"... "Aliased"? Anyway, thanks for the helpful answer!
