I have designed a layout in photoshop, using sample text of Arial 10pt with no layer effects.
However, when I import my layout into CSS, and then add real text inside the DIVS, the Arial 10pt font appears different.
As shown above, the text becomes significantly larger in DW (top) than it appears in Photoshop (bottom) and also becomes smoother and less pixelated looking.
So, how do I overcome this text difference? Is it possible for me to get my text in Dreamweaver to look EXACTLY like it does in Photoshop?
Thanks if anyone can help,
Point size is nearly meaningless on screen. It depends on too many factors. It's main use is for print.
Use pixel size. You can set Photoshop to use pixels for text in your preferences, or if you do print work, you can change it on a case by case basis.
Ok great thanks for that suggestion. Do you know anyway to overcome the "smoothness" that the DW arial font carries as opposed to the pixelated ones shown in the image above?
