[SUGGESTION] Subpixel anti-aliasing


Recommended Posts

On Firefox and Chrome, a vast majority of text is shown using subpixel rendering, which is a method of anti-aliasing that supposedly increases the apparent resolution of the screen that the text is being shown on. I have included an example in this post (image courtesy of Wikipedia).

I feel like subpixel rendering could come in handy when putting text in an image.

Generally, this is a very bad idea for static images, as images can be viewed on a variety of different monitor types.

Even on an LCD monitor, the text will look bad if the monitor is rotated 90 degrees into portrait mode.

 

Regular text, on the other hand, can be rendered on-the-fly correctly for the screen it's on.

 

 

Having said that, there's a plugin that can transform regular text to LCD rendered text.
