Default Unanswered: GIMP help?

I was making a blinking text thing for the Ice cream club and it came out horrid!

Click the image to open in full size.
Can someone help me?

It looks okay. Maybe try a thinner font. Like Crushed out Girl or Cinnamon Cake.

Text shouldn't lose its quality. Maybe you had the text setting on aliased, which gives it those nasty edges. You want the text to be anti-aliased, so it has smooth edges. Make sure that when you're editing the text, you have the anti-aliasing box checked.

It looks great otherwise. (:

I really like it, but one thing that might help you is opening a transparent canvas before you type the text.
Just go File --> New, and then press the plus by Advanced options and make sure it says Fill With: Transparency.
I'm sorry if you already did that, but great job! (:

if you didn't do this, then i think this might help -
animation > blend > ok
then play it and see if it's less "fuzzy."
