I've been trying to put a 685x100 banner on my guide but it keeps getting resized and becomes low quality when it's supposed to be .png

I go with 750x100 or 750x150.

I host them in stash, deviantART's storage service which is pretty splendid in terms of quality if you ask me.

Here's an example of my issue:

How it should look like in terms of quality


How it actually looks like

Your image is 700, not 685.

Doesn't change a bit, tried 650, 685 and I'm about to try 750. I asked for the size of the chapter section so I know the exact size and avoid any kind of automatic resize.

Well, thin white font on black background isn't exactly going to look spectacular no matter what the resolution is.

Why would you even choose an image to convey words? Not everyone has a decent internet, so it may take a long time to load the guide. Additionally, what if you make a typo, or feel like adding in some new text?

Instead, why not just try using a different font, if that's what is the only difference.

Who is Zed?
Zed is a very mobile ninja AD assassin who is more efficient during late game compared to other assassins. We could call him a late game assassin.


Lastly, it's hard to "search" for a guide if it is only images. For instance, looking up "mobile ninja assassin" brings up this. If you coin a unique phrase like that, YOUR guide will be the first to appear.

Idk if you like the look of these (in terms of size) as they are both different dimensions but compress and look really nice. Maybe try making one in either of these sizes?
Also, if you're going to do the text + header, SPLIT THEM UP. Make it 2 images. I'm pretty sure that is should compress the header much easier, and if you have to, break the text up into multiple images if it doesn't come out cleanly.

I didn't really think about it until I was almost done. But I can't go back now, It'd be 10 hours of work wasted :/ I will keep the PSDs of course in case of a typo or if I want to add text.

I will try a different font, and I will change the color as Astrolia said, and might even change .png to a .jpeg like Veng uses, might be the issue here.

Thanks a lot guys!
