Gimp text tool problems
With the text tool (GIMP 2.8.6, Ubuntu 13.10) I cannot seem to produce very good text in my images. Text is always muddy, jaggy, etc. Fiddling with hinting and anti-alias never gets me very far. Any ideas why?

At this size it's not so obvious, but if you look at this, especially the top title: "first congregational...", it's just not very sharp.
