Text will blur

Post by snowbydave1 » 2007-03-23T06:18:04-07:00

Dear Friend,

I am writing text on a .JPG file. File resolution is 72. Text is written successfully with specified color.

But text will blur. I had called DrawSetTextAntialias(), but still text is blur.

Please anybody guide me ?

Thanking you,

Dhaval Dave

JPEG does NOT handle sharp color changes bluring the result over about 4 pixels..

See IM Examples... JPEG Color Distortion

If you want it sharp and exact, do not use JPEG
