Red face How to make not blurry text jpegs in photoshop?

I have PhotoShop 7 and for some reason the text jpegs I'm making are blurry when inserted into word docs. I've tried crisp, sharp, sharpen more, etc., I've tried creating the eps much bigger with much bigger font. I've tried 600 dpi. I"ve tried saving as pdf first, then saving pdf as jpg. I've started over 15 times. I never used to have this problem (weird!). Nothing is working! What am I doing wrong? Please, some brilliant PhotoShop user - can you save my day?

Thanks, Chava

Why do you need to set text in Photoshop, why not just use Word itself??

Okay assuming that you need to do this for quality (which for some reason isn't happening) the only thing that I can think of is either resolution settings (which you say you have addressed) or lack of a printer font. Are you on a Mac or a PC?? Are you using truetype or type 1 fonts?

Word has a real problem with file formats. As a rule of thumb, I always use JPEGs set to 100 dpi in RGB and created at 100% of production size so there is no scaling done.

Don't know if any of this helps, but may need a little more info to answer the question.

You are saving your file as a jpg.

Try saving as a .TIF and see if that's not better.
