Text in PSP 8

Okay...I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking this, so if it isn't, the mod can feel free to delete it.

I've been having a bit of an issue with Paintshop Pro 8 lately...every time I save an icon in jpg format, the text goes all blurry, but only in that format. It never used to do that, just in the past month or so, and I've been trying to figure out what's going on, and I just have no ideas.

Can anyone help?

Paintshop tutorial

Since a lot of people have been asking about 1) how to outline text in Paintshop and 2) how to do borders/frames in Paintshop, I've tried to make a tutorial explaining both on an example icon, including lots of screencaps of the PaintShop functions I used. Also, I'm including some basic steps in making a picture looking a bit brighter and colorful. This is my first try, so don't be too hard on me ;)

I'm using Paint Shop Pro 6, but I'm sure most of the functions are the same on other versions of PSP.

lost; i thought i lost you somewhere

(no subject)

I know there are abillion posts on the glow effect, but I have one more ^_^;.

I'd really like an opinion, which program does the effect better? I use PaintShopPro 7 and its okay but I've seen icons where it comes out fantastic. Would PSP8 improve it?

If not, is there a better technique? What I do is duplicate the layer, set brightness/contrast to 10/30 then gaussian blur to 2.00, then go to properties and lower the opacity.

Help if very much appreciated ^_^. Thanks in advance!

Hi...I'm new to Icon making completely

Well, I'm using Adobe PhotoDeluxe HomeEdition 4.0......it allowed to me make the icon and everything. Only it won't let me save it under jpg or png....the ones we need to get them on here. How can I fix this? Cuz I don't have an icon at all...and I would really love to have one....lol! Thanks!
