This topic has probably been discussed before, but I'm unable to find anything on the lists that will allow me to achieve the results I want. Text created in the Gimp continues to be quite jaggy. I want to achieve nice, smooth fonts, such as those I can achieve with Photoshop (if I pay) or through OpenOffice's vector drawing program (but without the many advantages of the Gimp).
I am running a Mac with OS X 10.3.2, with Freetype installed via Fink. I downloaded the latest version of Gimp.app (version 2.0.x). Upon first running Gimp, it recognizes the majority of my fonts, and even gives me a nice menu showing examples of the fonts. Nevertheless, even when I turn on "Antialiasing" in the font property panel (and also with mucking with the hinting settings), I still get jaggedy fonts, such as those shown in the attached image.
It must be the case that I'm doing something wrong, or that my environment is set up improperly... perhaps I need to compile Gimp from scratch so as to make use of Freetype??
Thanks for your help!
