In a previous video about creating a text logo using Photoshop, I used the Photoshop function Save For Web to save an example text logo.
Did you know Photoshop Creative Cloud is available
for under $10 per month?
However, how sharp your text logo looks, depends on the font you are using and the settings prevailing in your Photoshop application at the time you save. It also depends on how you save your file.
In this next video I show you the best way I have found of making my text logos as crisp as possible when using Photoshop. It’s important to experiment with different fonts too.
If you look at the video that describes how to add Google Fonts into Photoshop, you will not be short of choice.
The quality of the font may impact how sharp the final result is, and of course you should save when possible using the .png format if quality is important to you.
A .png formatted file would certainly be best for a logo containing text.
Two Examples Of Text Images Resized In Different Ways
The first image has dark edging around the brown text which can be seen if you look closely. It was
saved for web and resized by the
save for web operation.
The second image has no dark edging around the brown text and has a sharper appearance. Very important if you are using it for your logo.
The second image was saved using the
image/image size function, and then saved for web without applying a file dimension reduction.
