Question about a weird font problem

Edit: Thanks for everyone's responses. Looks like it's just a trick of the eye. Woe. :D

I like to use the font 'Georgia' at 5px for a lot of text in my graphics. However, while it looks really nice in black, in white it seems thin, faded and like it hasn't been anti-aliased (even though it has). I've tried duplicating the layer, blurring the bottom layer and putting it in bold but none of it seems to make it look 'right'. I use PSP 8 and if anybody has any ideas about what's going on, or if it's just my own imagination or something that just 'is', I'd be very grateful.

I need some help.

Okay, so I made some icons and such earlier today in Photoshop CS2, and then I came back and now the text isnt working? It says the words that I type and whatnot, but it doesn't show up? I don't know how to explain it, so I brought a screencap.

Hi there!
I'm attempting to cover up my lack of blending talent with some text and a box, but when I rotate the text, it becomes blurry. (Or it seems blurry to me, at least.)

I'm using PSP8. Is there a way to keep the text as clear as it is in the first icon when I rotate it? I've tried sharpening the text layer, which doesn't seem to do anything, and I'm pretty much out of ideas? Help?

Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

Tutorial #6- Claire Bennet

Today we will be going from this to this: Using PS7, Selective Coloring and Masks. Not translatable to my knowledge.

Here at 7mins2midnight

For this icon, your number/colors will most likely be different. Use this tutorial as a guide to make your own awesome icon:) My user icon is another example of this technique focusing on reds and whites.

My First Tutorial. PS7 Colouring Tutorial

Go from >>

to >> or >>

[>>] Made using Adobe Photoshop 7.0
[>>] Uses Gaussian Blur, Linear Dodge, Soft Light, Multiply, Color, Luminosity Layers.
[>>] Translatable

Other Finished Examples (using same technique)

I made this tutorial with friends who have only just started using PS7 in mind.
Therefore I tried to keep the steps very detailed but basic.

For me I know my way around PS7 and It takes less than five minutes to do this.
