Blender version 2.83.

I learnt putting an image on a surface with this. All is working well. But, the output image isn't as 'high quality' as expected.

First, I create a 2D image in inkscape, 512x512.

Then, putting it on a surface, as below: enter image description here

Finally, Render -> Image -> Save As

Comparing side by side: enter image description here

The left is the original 2D image, the right is the rendered image in Blender.

I can observe that, the word 'abc', originally white color, becomes a little 'grey' or 'dull'. (It just doesn't look as bright and vivid as the origin, did i miss some configuration?)

P.S.: Am I supposed to build the entire thing in blender instead of loading image....

    $\begingroup$ It's the default color management, it makes everything look gray. Do this. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If it's not a problem of color management, icrease the light power, or use an Emission node instead of a Diffuse node (but in that case your face won't be affected by lights and environment) $\endgroup$

As mentioned by @scurest, the color management is the reason. The answer in that link exactly explained it: Color Management -> View Transform -> Standard (instead of Filmic)
