I made a Red Sox season schedule wallpaper. I made each individual month and then flattened them and then saved them as jpegs. After that I pasted them onto the wall. But the dates and letters are all pixelated if you look closely. Any idea how to fix this?

I'm probably nitpicking but if you look closely around the U in July it looks fuzzy. Thanks for your help though

I was told in graphic design classes to do text in Illustrator. Photoshop rasterizes text making it pixelated.

It is better to do type in Illustrator (although it's best to do it in InDesign), but Photoshop does not rasterize type. When you use the type tool in Photoshop, it actually renders it in vector. This is why when you free transform and scale your type up it doesn't lose any quality. You can, however, rasterize your type if you'd like.
