I've been building sites for almost 3 years now and this has been the most consistent, most difficult problem to overcome. It's like everyone knows this same little "trick" except me. And I can not explain in words how frustrating this has become. Because I see *newbies* making sites who know how to do this.... and after all this time I still have no clue what all you marketers are doing. The main problem: Every site I have ever made, once the sites are done and I compare them to other sites on the web, they always look a bit blurry and dull. This is not a contrast problem. It's not how I'm saving my files because I've read so many photoshop tutorials it's not even funny. And it doesn't really show in the pictures I use. I can get clear pictures just by starting with really clear pictures in photoshop. The problems start happening as soon as I start editing ANYTHING in photoshop. Like say I take 3 images and want to make a table, once I start adding boxes, shapes and text, then save the file it never comes out clear. The text is always straining on the eyes. Even if I change the fonts 50 times and save, it still looks dull. And this dull effect becomes that much more noticeable when looking at smaller fonts. EXAMPLE: This is a table someone else made (I grabbed it from a site someone posted in the SEO section) vs a table I made on my own. Here's the "HD" table first - As you can see, everything it very sharp and easy to read. Even the white on yellow text you can read very clearly. Here is a table I made - Some people will say "you can barely notice it". Others will immediately notice the difference. And the problem becomes VERY obvious once you compare my entire site to the entire site I grabbed that graphic from. I wish I could post both sites because you'd see how serious this problem really is. The text in my header, the text in my banner ad above my table, my sidebar, any graphics with text done in photoshop... the text is ALWAYS blurry. The text in the first image might be bigger, but even if I find smaller tables with smaller text the resolution is always sharp. The problem is NOT the bit of gray gradient I have behind the smaller text, even if I make the background completely white, the edges of the text is STILL blurry. It seems like 95% of web designers know how to avoid this, even newbies.... but I don't. What makes things worse is this demotivates me from making really fancy graphics like I use to. I use to spend a lot of time trying to make the best graphics I could, just to compensate for my blurry text problem, but then I just wind up with nice designs that are STILL BLURRY. This has been going on for ***3*** years now. My intuition tells me the problem is photoshop. Because if I copy sharp text from a website into photoshop, then save it has a jpeg it looks sharp. But if I create the text within photoshop itself, regardless of the font, size, contrast or how I save the file, the text ALWAYS comes out blurry. But then I read threads online and it seems like so many marketers use photoshop for their graphics... so it boggles my mind. WHAT ARE YOU MARKETERS DOING TO GET SHARP TEXT?
