    Bitmap Clarity

    I have been using MSoft Paint to create a bitmap of text with font size 36. When I post the HTML page it appears quite fuzzy around the edges. Does anyone have any advice on how to get crisp edges. Perhaps I should be usinjg something other than Msoft Paint.

    Thanks,
    John

    What format are you saving the image in? .bmp?
    Try saving as a .gif or convert to a .jpg - either of which may be more efficient.

    Leif,

    I'm saving it as a bmp file format. I've tried you suggestion but it does not appear to make a difference.

    Re: Bitmap Clarity

    Are you setting the size in your coding which is expanding it?
    The attached is created in paint using 36pt and looks pretty reasonable to me.

    (BTW this is 2K, the bmp version was 44K!)
