Does anybody know what small fonts look good for creating gifs? I have Photoshop 5.5 on a Win2k system. My friends with Macs can create very small fonts that are crisp and readable, but mine are fuzzy... I've tried playing with the anti-aliasing and kerning,ect, but that doesn't really help. Do Mac fonts just look better than Win fonts??
the mac have some very good fonts that windows doesn't have. for example, helvetica looks great at small size. and so does geneva. two great fonts that we don't have.
try searching for "pixel fonts" on google, you should find some good free fonts there that don't need to be anti-aliased - you just need to use them at the size specified - most are between 5pt and 8pt - very small and very crisp.
