[Gimp-user] Need High Def Text

Your "A1" poster is tiny. A1 size is 594 mm x 841 mm and your image
size in pixels is 592 x 561 pix so I conclude that, apart from the
aspect ratio, you have pixels and mm mixed up. Printing that on  A1
papergives a resolution of pixels per inch (ppi)

For a poster that will be viewed at a distance you do not need
phot-grapic quality 300 ppi but you do need better than 25 ppi, say
150 ppi.

Make a new canvas, Image -> New, in the advanced section set the
horizontal/vertical resolution, set the size in mm. After that work in
pixels, Gimp is a raster editor, works with pixels.

Then there is the outlining: guessing you did some sort of selection
and used that, leaving semi-transparent pixels between the white text
and the magenta outline.

A better way once you have a text layer is Text to path -> Stroke the
path. Apply that to a layer under the text for best results.
