Finally - one I may be able to answer ..
Try scaling the image close to the size and resolution you expect to print
_before_ you add the text. I believe the text is essentially bitmapped
onto your image when you add it. If your printing implies a substantial
enlargement you may be looking at the edges of the text as it was
Just a guess, but I had a similar problem when I started out and that was
the reason for ragged edges and fuzzy characters on my text. You may even
want to create your image at higher resolution than you will print it --
at least once or twice as experiments.
