Well, all of you’ll know that Photoshop has the option to make anti-akiasing “Smooth”. Is this option recommended when making the PSD for a template, or should i set it to “none”?

R.

Edit: And it should be “web”, not “we” in the header. Sorry :-(

Smooth is better for visual eye-candy, but it doesn’t really matter.

Thanks. I decided to disable smooth so that the PSD actually looks like the HTML .

HTML is actually anti-aliased to some degree. Popular belief states that anti-aliasing: none is the closest to HTML ; it is not. Take a screenshot of any text (including this) and you’ll notice the text is smoothed out by using red and blue shadows.

Do as you wish; but personally, anti-aliased text is more appealing.

I actually outputted images with and without ant-aliasing. Comapred them using the Typetester tool. ‘None’ was the closest match..

Do what you will but it’s not a good idea.

I’m just wondering: why ask for advice if you’re not going to listen to it?

My rule of thumb is if the font is below 10px, I use anti-aliasing none, if it’s above, I use a mix of sharp and smooth anti-aliasing.

you said it didn’t matter, so I disabled it. I really didn’t know, sorry if it comes across as though I’m ignoring advice.
