I have been designing photoshop files for sale to photographers online and all of my work has been created in a windows 7 system. I had a photographer contact me saying that the PSD was trouble to open and that the fonts would not work on his MAC computer.
Can someone supply me with information on creating/saving windows PSD files so that a MAC user can open them and also use the fonts I supply with the files.
The files I create are multilayered PSD's and contain fonts for windows PC use and I don't want to exclude MAC users from utilizing my work.
Any help appriciated.
Just save. There is no difference in files between platforms.
There are some Windows-centric font formats that aren't portable, by any OpenType or TrueType font will be portable between platforms.
Unless the text is specifically intended for input by the individual customers Convert to Shape would be an option to avoid font issues.
The PSD format does not embed/include font files. I'm trusting that you are not separately including those font files when you distribute your PSD files. Redistributing fonts files is typically against your license to use them (ie: illegal).
