I'm having trouble printing out a Photoshop picture with some text. The text comes out noticeably pixelated. I know there is a way to print it in a non-pixelated way (the font is much more smooth) since I can print out another Photoshop picture with text of the same font, color, size, and everything else and there is no pixelation. Both pictures are exactly the same size (863 by 1125), and neither text layer has been rasterized. Why would one print out pixelated and the other not?
I have a CS5 PhotoShop document, and it is 150px by 150px. The problem is that any text i put on it is slightly pixelated. I have tried anti-aliasing but its not working.I am planning to put the image on a website but the text on the image is clearly more pixelated than text on the page even when it is saved in the highest quality jpeg.
i've played with settings and preferences and resolution...and the problem remains: when viewed at anything other than 100%, all text is pixelated, no matter if it's smooth, crisp...whatever. it prints fuzzy as well. i have run into this problem with photoshop (CS) before, but it was on a school computer and someone else fixed it. now i have my own (CS2)
I have tried for the life of me to figure this one out...why is my text ALWAYS fuzzy when I print it out, no matter what I do? I am not manipulating it at all, just typing it on my page, then printing. I have tried checking and unchecking "scale to fit media", I have tried printing straight from the psd file, I have tried printing from a saved jpg image. It doesn't look fuzzy/blurry at ALL on my computer screen.
Apparently Adobe doesn't recognize my username and password for this second account, and when I ask to send a password to my email, I never get the email, so I had to create a third account just to post a thread and update it. [URL]....
I can't find a Reply button anywhere to update my question. I just saw it there a few days ago. What happened to that? How do I export a vector drawing with text in Photoshop to a PDF, such that the text isn't pixelated when I view the PDF?
everything was fine until I downloaded and opened an animated .gif in Photoshop 7.0 for manipulation. I'm not sure how .gifs work, so I just used the one frame of the animation that came up when I opened it. I did the job an everything turned out fine.
when I use the text function in Photoshop, the text always comes out pixelated and jagged.
In photoshop I created a document that is 8.5x11, the size of standard printing paper, with a letter in a handwritten font. When I print my letter the print quality is not so great. I have resolution for the image set to 100. There is a little bit of a blur around the edges of the font and overall it is not very crisp.
If I take that same font when printed through microsoft word, it is very crisp, sharp and high quality.
What might be the disconnect between the two? Why is the same document much more crisp and clean when printed through word than through photoshop?
I notice that whenever I add text to a photo, and get it back from the lab that the text is ugly! It looks nothing like it does on my monitor. These are hi-res photos taken with my Canon 5D MkII. I save them as .jpg's at the highest resolution.
I am trying to produce nutritional facts and text for product labels and it is looking somewhat pixelated. Some printer told me to use illustrator or quark and import that text to photoshop. Any better ideas?
Whenever I have text, its always fuzzy or pixelated, its really annoying.I have antialiasing selected, I have changed the dpi, made sure it was at 100% and whatever else I could think of.Also, I think the background is also a bit fuzzy, so that's why I think it is the dpi or something like that.But it is always not 100% sharp.I have attached a copy of the back cover. Its the same for all though.
I'm having an issue on my full scale detail sections for a set of entry doors. I used layoutwizard to create my layout and I'm adding text (dtext) and leaders and it all looks good on my screen. When I print it out the text is rotated 90 degrees. I imagine it's any easy fix but I sure can't find it.
I thought I should add- when I look at 'print preview' the text is rotated. When I go back to the layout the text looks correct. I tried unchecking the "match text orientation to layout" and checking it again and it didn't work. Seems like this might be a glitch of some sort?
update: If the text is in model space it prints properly. Only the text in paper space shows up rotated.
I'm looking to add the name of the person printing the document as well as the date to any paper copies printed. However, since everythign is stored in Vault, this needs to be done without making any changes to the document that require saving the document.
Ideally this would be automatic(requiring no user input).
I've used both iLogic and built Inventor Addins before.
When printing a paper space viewport in Conceptual Visual Style mode, text objects are visible in the print preview but not in the printout on paper. Why are they not hidden in the preview if they are not going to be printed?
I've been using Photoshop CS5 for years now and never had any trouble with my lineart. I use an Intuos 4 tablet. This is what my lines used to look like last time I used Photoshop. Always on a 1 px round brush with the following settings:
Now, all of a sudden, my lineart looks pixelated. I am using the exact same settings and even tried updating my drivers, it has not been fixed. It's causing me insane amounts of stress since this is what I do for a living and the decrease in lineart quality is really taking a hit on my work.This is what they look like now..
I was experimenting with 3d model texturing in CS4. However whenever I zoom into the model I was trying to texture, it becomes very pixelated to the point of where I couldnt tell what it is supposed to look like. The only way I can tell what it is anymore is while using the camera rotate, the model once again comes back into focus with the sharp edges that I desire.
I am currently working on wedding invitations with a copied image from google. However, when we go to print the image it comes out grainy and pixelated. I am so new to photoshop I just stare at it blankly. Can you offer some help on how to make the image not so choppy when I have to scale it down and print it. It looks great from far away, but when you actually go to read the thing , I am sure everyone will be " oh, obviously from the computer"
I recently encountered a problem that I am sure could be corrected if I were more experienced.
I am building a website using Dreamweaver. I adjust my photos for size In Photoshop Cs3 of course. I then save them for the web on a transparent background as a gif. When I view my image in Dreamweaver the edge of the image appear pixelated (sort of a white aoutline) I would like to feather some of my images but when I save them and then include them in my webpage the feathered edge is visible as a white outline shadow. The images are fine otherwise.
This also happens if I add a layer style to text such as bevel. The bevel area appears as a large white outline.
I am sure there is a setting I am not aware of. Should I have a specific setting when I save the images for the web?
The grid lines I used when creating a watercolour are showing when I print the image, however they are not showing when I am in Photoshop, making it impossible for me to correct them. Is there a tool I can use to bring these lines to the forefront so that I can correct them?
I'm confused about gamma adjustment. I'm getting a book ready to be published by a print on demand company. It involves making a PDF using InDesign which contains photos which I've edited in Photoshop. The company has a list of specifications " to be sure that my PDF prints properly",and one of them says "The gamma of a grayscale image should be between 2.2 and 2.4." I don't know how to interpret this. If I change the gamma of a photo to 2.2 it obviously becomes much lighter, but then when it's saved the new lighter document has a gamma of 1.
I know I'm not understanding this at all. I've looked all over trying to figure this out. Most references refer to gamma adjustments for monitors, and I get that. I also know that when things are printed they will come out darker because of dot gain.
When printing any document through Photoshop CS5, it's printing at about 25% opacity. If we open the file in Preview or Word, it prints just fine! What do I need to change to get PS printing correctly again?
This all started when we downloaded a template offline. My co-worker designed within the template and when she went to print, it was faded. I tried printing a photo from my computer to the same printer quick to troubleshoot what the error might be (low ink, etc...) and my photo printed 100% ok. I then opened the file she designed, tried printing it and it was faded. I then tried printing the photo that printed earlier fine and now it and everything else I print is faded! What in the world changed? We've tried restarting both our machines, restarted PS, deleted and reinstalled the print drivers, etc... But to no avail.
We're printing to just a simple desktop printer, a Canon MP210.
I've used Photoshop CS4 for sometime but I'm no expert!A club I'm in has asked me to fill in pre-printed membership certificates with members names etc. The only way I can think of for doing this would be to scan the certificate and call it layer
1. Then fill in the new details and call it layer 2.I then remove layer 1 and layer 2 is in the correct position for inserting the certificate into the printer and printing on it.Of course this is just my theory, how to even try it!
When a piece is going to be printed in a magazine or even output to a desktop printer I have found that the color on the monitor (yes it is calibrated) bears very little relation to the printed product. Just curious as to what you guys do to compensate. Do you work brighter and more colorfully on the screen knowing that things are going to darker up in the translation?
Recently I got a new printer ( Canon LBP5000 - color laser ) and I have a problem when printing from Photoshop ( CS ). When I print a picture, white comes out beige, and all the colors are off a bit. When I save that same picture and print it from another program everything comes out ok. I have attached pictures to illustrate the problem. The first one is the image file printed.
The second one is a photo of a sheet of paper with two printed images on it. The top one was printed from Photoshop, and the bottom one from some image viewer program.
creating web graphics, web text, web gifs but I seek a resource of creating a document in photoshop, designed for an 11 x 8.5 inch piece of paper that when printed, will be crystal clear.
Most of my efforts, in fact all of my efforts have fallen short (smudged or jagged print and graphics) so I'm missing something. I'm not saving it in the correct format, I'm not printing it with the correct settings, or something else.
simple logo in blue and grey which we want to get professioannly printed. I don't know much about print, but I do know that until now with a .psd and a .eps I've always got my stuff done in acceptable quality.
Now the printshop seems unable to get the colours right. The logo only has 2 colours, blue and gray. For both I have given them specs in 5 colour models, such as this, and handed them the file in .psd, .eps and .ai:
Now the blue they have come up with in a print preview looks absolutely nothing like this. And the grey is almost transparent.
They asked for Pantone colours. I created the logo in Photoshop, so all I have are these specs. Is it impossible to print a logo more or less correctly with exact values from 5 different colour models?
What can I do to convey them more or less precisely which kind of blue we want?
