I'm a web developer, chopping up psd comps and building out sites based on my co-workers designs. Someone asks about higher quality graphics of text, and sharper images as main banners.

I'm not sure how best to design comps and graphics. Should designers always use screen resolution in the original psd file?

If you use a serif font at screen resolution and then save for web, are you getting a fuzzier image than if you work at a higher resolution and then optimize? And if you use a higher resolution in photoshop, will that throw off the measurements in pixels when individual graphics are optimized for the web?

for example, the tag line in the top left looks a little degraded on this template I'm building?

suggestions to improve the quality would be welcome.

Use 72 dpi and turn anti-aliasing off for any text.

You know, Sim City Societies had a lot of potential, it was a great concept that was horribly developed and lacked any kind of depth. The idea of individualize buildings functioning independently playing its role in a largely diverse and thriving city.

The new Sim City appears to be the classic Sim City gameplay we saw with SC4, combined with a far better developed version of the Societies concepts. Looking great guys, don't let us down.
