According to the guidelines, 26% opacity is meant for hint text and disabled text. More prominent labels should be 87% black or 54% black depending on whether they are considered primary or secondary text. In the guideline you quoted: Text hints for users, like those in text fields and labels, have an even lower visual prominence and should have an ...

Another way to produce a 3D effect in Photoshop similar to your example is to create your text, apply the stroke, convert to smart object, and distort as explained above. Then switch to the Move tool and, holding down the Alt key, repeatedly press the right arrow key (I did it about 20 times) to arrive at the desired depth. Which arrow key you press ...

Type and arrange your text. Apply an Outside Stroke making it bigger and bigger until everything is covered. Mine is rounded because I used a round font, the text in yours is square because its a square font: Select your text layers together and Convert to Smart Object Then Edit > Transform > Perspective and in the same one can do a slight skew: ...

In Photoshop If you're going for a similar style of the original artwork and using Photoshop then you will want to use the Distort Tool. Write out your text. I quickly used the pen tool to show an example of the original text. You have to turn your type layer into a smart object. Right click on the type layer in the layers panel and click Convert to Smart ...

In order to use transparencies with GIMP, you need to add an alpha layer. Check your Image Mode; if you are in Indexed or Grayscale mode, convert to RGB mode. The options for adding alpha layers (RGBA) will then be available. The relevant parts of the documentation are: 4.7. Change the Mode 7.33. Add Alpha Channel

Observing that the EPS file uses PDF-style syntax, I noted that the text scaling is done with Tf: 8 0 0 8 5.327283 18.119995 Tm The 6 numbers are a transformation matrix, where the first number (8) is the x scale and the fourth number (also, as it happens, 8) is the y scale of the text. You have to pick one (well, usually) – I picked the first number. ...

This is a very simple procedure. what do you what to know exactly is how much enlarging (in percentage) a text from 18pt to 20pt. Just measure the text before enlarging it (in pixel or mm) and measure it after enlarging it. then do some calculation, and this will be the ratio that you must enlarge the whole drawing with.

What I'm saying is, that this upper solution is not fully correct. Because: textItem.position does not return the correct top upper left position. From what I have found out you need to add kind of an offset at least to "y". In my tests this offset has always been 3px. Thus the bounds are: [YourTextLayer.textItem.position[0], ...

My suggestion would be this: Add text without underline Adjust text to correct size, font, and color Use the Pen tool to create a straight stroke Adjust the fill of the stroke to the color desired for the underline Place the new line under the text field You now should only have to copy and paste the stroke under each word that needs it. This seems like ...

There are programs that do exactly this...generate logos from templates and lists of fonts. Here's one for example: http://www.logomaker.com/ And some of the "logos" you can make using it: Are these good logos? Impossible to say without knowing a lot more about the customer and their needs. I think most professional designers would argue that these are ...

I completely understand what you are looking for and why. I recently read in the book, Logo Creed, a section about the process of logo designer Brian Miller. He uses Freehand MX to do exactly what you are asking. I have just started to search for this outdated program to see if it is possible to load it onto a modern mac without issues. (Let me know if ...

Here are the steps you can use to produce a similar result, some tweaking to taste may be necessary: Create a blank document with a white background Write the text you want in the color and weight you want Press Ctrl-J to duplicate the layer Pull the new layer below the original text layer (not terribly necessary but will make a neater stack) Target the ...

How to get rid of unwanted ligatures in InDesign Webfonts often have very "bad" "stylish" ligatures and I don't notice the same with PostScripts or TrueType fonts in general. But you can turn on/off the ligatures using the character panel in Adobe InDesign if you want to get rid of them! Simply uncheck the ligatures option in the character panel options. ...

What? Are you talking about fonts with indistinguishable I and l? If so, just use a different typeface. I don't see how ligatures come into the picture here at all.

Make sure the rectangle is behind the type (that has been converted to outlines). Then try the Pathfinder tool: Minus Back.

Set the Text Type > Create Outlines Draw the rectangle Grab the Shape Builder Tool Hold down the Option/Alt key and click-drag across rectangle

Or: you can convert to curves (together). And then, only select one of them.

After adding underline, convert the text to vector curve the select only the underline and assign any color you want. The drawback is if you want to change the text, you have to delete it, rewrite the new text and do these again.

I would draw a new thin rectangle and put under the text you would like to underline. You can then group the 2 objects to keep together. Too bad it isn't as easy as CSS.

There isn't really a formula. You have to use hyphenation, soft returns, maybe a little kerning, and your own judgement. (Also, some clients are so hysterically allergic to hyphens that they will accept any dreadful rag or white space to avoid them, so "client preference" may also be a variable.)

If you're using InDesign, you can choose "Balance Ragged Lines" under the paragraph tool palette


5

The rule of thumb is that ragged-right is always acceptable as an option. Your challenge is that you have rather narrow columns, so the rag is simply more pronounced in relation to the overall block of text. Typically you handle the rag 'evenness' via hyphenation. But excessive hyphenation isn't always desired. DTP software such as InDesign often have ...

It's possible the text was created All Caps from the pull out on the Character panel. If so, select all the text unselect the All Caps. See image below. Alternatively you can use this useful resource, and copy / paste the text from your PSD file into the site. You can then convert it to the type of case (Sentence case, lower case, Capitalized Case, etc) and ...

One way of doing it is to use the clone tool(). This tool basically lets you choose a source to copy from, then use it like a brush to paint the source over the destination. To select a source, press Ctrl+Left Click with the cursor over the source, then you can begin drawing over the destination. In this case, you have to make sure that the source is a ...

tbh, the easiest way would be to source an image of a clear blackboard (but with the smudges and texture you want) and use that to replace the board in the background. So look for some masking and layer blending tutorials for gimp, that should help you out a bit.

cmd + enter then move to the next text :)

Although the question is quite old, I believe that this answer might help others with the same or a similar problem. Using "integrated" LaTeX for typesetting As @KingOliver already mentioned, using LaTeX is a good way for typesetting mathematical formula and equations. A better solution, than dowloading GIFs without any option to change the equations after ...
