Text on an image isnt clear or sharp enough

  Hoseman 22:57 16 Aug 2004

Hi I need some advice about an image im putting together which includes some text. Ive messed about with images and text before but Im a complete novice. The problem is that it always looks crappy as in the text isnt 100% clear so I was wondering if Im doing anything wrong? Im using the gimp software and just writing in the text using the text tool. Any help appreciated.

after you've added the text?

Try preparing the image first - make it the correct physical size for your web page - and then save it as a Jpeg or Gif. Now add the text and don't alter the compression. I don't have any personal experiences of the gimp, but it should merge the text with the image file when you save it, so it can't subsequently be edited.
