I voted Yes because it's kinda true sometimes.

We use GDI for font rendering in v2.6x. This has a "sharper" look than what you generally expect from an image editor. This usually looks great for UI, but not for pictures. Sometimes it looks like it isn't anti-aliased, although if you zoom in you can see that it is ... but just barely. At large sizes fonts tend to not be anti-aliased at all, which affected me when doing some Segoe UI text at size 1376 (I'm not joking here :)).

v3.0 will have the ability to use "smooth" or "sharp" text rendering, with the default being smooth. "Smooth" employs GDI+ for the rendering. It looks great, too.

So smooth use GDI+ & sharp use GDI?

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

Wow! Thanks Rick! I'm eagerly awaiting v3.0, but I understand that it's a large undertaking. Thanks so much for your work on this project. I used to use an older version of Photoshop, but have switched completely over to Paint.NET. Now the only other photo editor I use is GIMP, and that's because it can edit animated GIFs.

THanks so much!
