Is it possible to get the clearest printout ever on Photoshop ? When i print stuff off from Photoshop, especially text, they seem to be a little fuzzy. Is their a way of getting these clearer ?

it depends on the printer, the image format, the scale of the image....if you resampled the image before enlarging it, what the resolution of the image is....etc...etc...etc

It might be better to explain the image you are starting off with, IE size, quality, etc. The original image has alot to do with end product.

Also is any resizing being down to this image, and if so how are you going about doing this?

Text added to a bitmap image is never going to be as sharp as standalone text because it gets converted to a bitmap when you save it, whereas 'true' text is fully scaleable without losing sharpness. You may get an improvement by applying 'unsharp mask' in PS after you've finished editing/resizing. How much you apply depends on the pixel-depth (resolution) of the image so you'll need to experiment, and don't save your images with sharpness applied -- it should only be applied for printing purposes. If you oversharpen it and save it, it's much, much harder to undo the damage. Play it safe and work on a copy.
