Image quality can be increased by applying a technique called "anti aliasing". This is a method for removing the annoying jagged edges found in many computer graphics images.
You can change the quality setting using the icon in the toolbar. You will get a dialog like this:
In there are 2 image qualities:
|•||Normal is the fastest and does not remove any jaggies.|
|•||High quality removes the "jaggies" but requires a longer processing time and more computer memory.|
Below is a closeup of the Futurist effect. On the left is the normal quality image and on the right is the anti-aliassed (high quality) image.
|•||The benefits of High image quality are most obvious with small images (less than 1000 pixels on a side).|
|•||With medium sized to large images it is probably better to use Normal as you experiment, and then use High when you find the setting that you want.|
|•||Very large images (more than 1024 pixels on a side) may be perfectly acceptable at NORMAL quality.|
|•||Image Quality settings apply to the sequence in which they are set. |
|•||To change the image quality level use the menu Properties | Image Quality... , or in the toolbar|
|•||Sometimes the apparent quality is less than it is in reality because your image is zoomed out . |
