Lightroom 4.3 and Windows 8
Has anyone that uses text watermarks on export in Lightroom 4.x noticed that the text looks horrible on a Windows 8 pc?
I've been using text watermarks for years on my photos without problems at any size final image. Since upgrading to Windows 8, using the same exact settings, the watermarks look like a hot jagged mess.
At first I thought the problem was due to resizing the images on export because at full size the watermark looked nice and smooth as it always had in the past. However, if I resize a file first to 1024 on the long side (or 800 or 1280 it really doesn't matter what the size) it still looks horrible.
I've run the same catalog through the same version of Lightroom on a Windows 7 computer and no matter what size I start with or export to the watermarks are nice and smooth.
It's really irritating as it makes the text watermark feature useless for me. So far no help from Adobe, hoping someone here might have run across this issue and found a solution.
