I am porting a design that has been sent to me in Word to Photoshop.
One part of the design contains a text with the font Bacalisties
When I try to print the original word layout to a white paper, the quality of the printed text is far better in Word than it is in the photoshop created layout. In photoshop I can spot lack of smoothness in the letters being printed. I am printing the text in a 40pt size in a A4 document, no scaling over 100% is being done anywhere.
How can this be?
I have increased the ppi settings in Photoshop from 72 to 300, and afterwards to a whopping 3000 PPI, same result.
I am using the same printer, with the same settings, to print both documents. I have tried printing directly from the photoshop document, I have tried exporting to a PDF, I have created a photoshop document natively in RGB and the convert to CMYK to print, I have created the file natively in CMYK, I have tried merging all the layers, and everything I could think of.
How is it possible that the printed artwork is so much worse in Word?
Some additional information I left out yesterday:
When I try to create a text in Photoshop, there is an option (not sure if it's antialias) whose default value is sharp. I have tried printing with sharp and smooth and the result is the same. Highly pixelated text, totally different from what I see if the same text is printed from a Word document.
