So you have turned on antialiasing? probably the same as smoothing in this case.

It really depends where you are using the text. For a picture that will be displayed on screen? or for print? If you are doing it for print then you should increase your resolution for a sharper image when printing and you wont get any aliasing problems.

are u creating and resizing the text as a regular image layer or as a text layer? If the text has already been rasterized, it'll come out like trash when u expand it... but if it still is in its original text vector format, it'll come out clean.
