Fading Text Question

Hi :)

I've checked the memories and read the selections regarding fading text, but I didn't run across what I was looking for (sorry if I missed it).

This is my second attempt at animation using AS3. I wanted the text to fade in, but when I used the increasing opacity technique, the result seems a tad staggered, and not smooth.

See what I mean?

Any suggestions?

Hey - I know this isn't really relevant to icons but I'm still curious. Does anyone know the code to customize 'the boxer' style of LJ? For example, to add CSS or HTML or add a header to the journal? Thanks in advance!

Icons look blurry, especially text

I'm using PSP8 to make icons, but I'm having trouble with them looking blurry. When I resize the original image a lot of the quality is lost, and I have a lot of trouble making the text look clear. I've seen quite a few icons that have clear, fine text, but mine always looks blurry. I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious, or if there's some setting I could change that would help. Maybe I should be using different fonts or something?
