I'm trying to create a logo in Photoshop using Bell MT font, but I'm finding that the edges are too sharp, making it look rather low in quality. Any suggestions for higher quality fonts that are similar in style?

Below is a sample of the font currently being used:

At that small size, Bell MT looks rather like a Caslon.

Most versions of Caslon's iconic font have a serif on the lower arm of the C, but there are a few cuts which don't and which might suit. From MyFonts.com, in no particular order...

  • Kudos, because this is very close - the main difference I see is the top of the "A", but this is entirely acceptable. I downloaded the Adobe Pro Caslon and I don't see a noticeable difference in quality, though.

You may be interested in 'Cardo Regular', which is a free font here: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Cardo.

I wouldn't usually stray away from the apple recommended list, but Andrew Leach has covered most of the recognisable ones above.
