first of all, i imagine that you are using the default text tool. don't do that. double click on the T button and select DynamicText or download and install the gimp-freetype plug-in. in fact, skip dynamic text for this sort of high res application and go right for freetype.
if freetype.gimp.org is still down, i think you can find a version at ftp://ftp.gimp.org somewhere. the default text tool renders anti-aliased fonts by drawing them 3 times bigger than requested and then rescaling them. freetype renders beautiful fonts a different and must be better way. carol On 2002-06-25 at 0855.36 -0700, Jeremiah Benham typed this mail: > I was trying to create a flier in gimp.
