Does anyone know the down and dirty trick to creating crisp, clean looking text with a transparant back ground in photoshop.

I've created the text in PS with a transparent BG and saved as a gif with transparency but when the graphic is displayed on my web page the edges of the text look as though they've been cut out by scissors and are not clean and crisp.

If anyone can clue me in on what I'm missing I'd much appreciated it...

Thanks,
Tim

When using a GIF with a transparent BG, you need to set the MATTE color (in save for web) to a color that is close to what the transparent gif will be put on top of. It does limit the use of the gif a bit, but it looks 10x better than making it with no matte.

PNG files support true transparency, but IE doesn't fully support it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] There are workarounds to enable it, but they are kind of a pain in the butt.

Yours doesn't look transparent to me but maybe I'm missing something. This is transparent.
