When I create text in Photoshop, it always comes out blurry and pixelated. How do I fix this problem?

Thanks.

I found this as well but only when viewing it on the monitor. I tried printing them out and they looked fine. Maybe u should try a "test" page.

Can you upload a sample pic for us to see? There's a few possibilities.

What do you mean by "blurry"? There are several anti-aliasing methods to choose from (try "Crisp" that seems to be the best) - also, is the text jagged? It could be an issue with using bitmap fonts.

Finally, are you viewing the file at 100%?? What version of Photoshop? Earlier versions rasterized text immediately and if your canvas is at a low dpi (i.e. 72dpi), it would definitely look blurry.

Can you post a screen shot?
