You only have to work with the letter m. Select the letter m and in the character formatting controls make the following: make the letter m [superscript] or reduce the [font size] of that m, and increase the [baseline shift] to an appropriate value. still m selected. reduce [Tracking] to any value you like. after you finish save the selected m in a ...

I'm only advising this on the basis that it's used for short snippets of text and not paragraphs. The formatting of headlines can and should be controlled as much as possible within reasonable limits. JavaScript, or extra unnecessary elements are not quite "reasonable limits". Non-Breaking Spaces on the other hand... ...

It is very likely that these "boxes" are layers, text layers in this case. Assuming this is it, the following might be the answer: Layers have a finite size in GIMP, and this size doesn't change automatically. If you want to paint somewhere, then you have to make sure that: there is a layer at this location this layer is active in the layers dialog ...

The best practice is to acknowledge that you have no real control over line breaks on the web and it's best to design with that in mind. Any solution to the contrary will, invariably, have to be hacky. As it will be a hack as HTML doesn't adhere to user defined line breaks outside of hard coding. You could do it with JS fairly easily. Set up your break ...

How can I import the text editor from CS3 to CS6? You cant move application specific tools from one version to another. I would advise checking the documentation from Adobe, Format and edit text.

I really recommend getting a copy of "Stop Stealing Sheep & find out how type works" by Erik Spiekermann and E.M. Ginger. The book does a fantastic job of explaining the basic principles behind type and typesetting and is fairly understandable even by folks who don't have domain knowledge in design or typography. And then I'd also recommend hanging out ...

The easiest solution is to export png in higher resolution and later resize images in Acdsee (using batching) or Photoshop (using actions). I am using this method constantly because many fonts has bad hinting instruction, which are causing x-height jumping (like in your sample). Another solution is to convert all text into outlines before exporting.

I found out a way: Turn the text into a smart-object Change the Image > Mode to Indexed Color Change the palette to Custom and create a color table of these colors:255/0/00/255/00/0/255255/0/2550/255/255255/255/00/0/0255/255/255 The image should be a little grainy but there is no way to change that. Go to Image > Mode > Color Table and for each color in ...

Your problem lies in the fact that the 'o' you are trying to give an effect is two separate paths, probably in a group. Effects like offset will not work properly, indeed. You will want to select all the o's paths and then make them into a Compound Path: Object > Compound Path > Make or right click > Make Compound Path. Besides, this effect is more easily ...

Just guessing, but there is one thing we sometimes see on the #gimp irc channel that matches the symptom: If your PNG file is in indexed color mode, it will only display with 256 colors in GIMP. Shades of one color are individual colors in this context. Which ones are available depends on the image's palette aka colormap, that's the dialog where you'd see ...

I suspect illustrator is setting the ascender height to 20mm, and that may or may not correspond to a letter's height. To clarify: when a type designer makes a font, he/she sets the measurements for ascenders and descenders in the font information. But when they draw the letters, they do not necessarily fill the whole height. And in fact, in most typefaces ...

The effect in question is a glow. Glow is colour radiating from the object edges, to either inwards or outwards, usually with a blur making the colour a gradient fading away. As in here, this is a white glow with 5 px blur made with Illustrator: Despite the name, glow doesn't have to be an actual glow, but can also radiate darker colours, and at least in ...

In Photoshop: Double-Click your text layer to open the Layer-Style Apply Inner Glow with your desired color (Inner Shadow does pretty much the same) Hope this helps.

i hope my translations are right for this: (it seems like i can't change CC Apps Language) Its in the "paragraph" windows menu -- should be something like spaces or distances and there you can change the distances between the words (first line): dont know if there is an easier way. hope this helps. sry for bad english :-/

This is very easy in Gimp. Just use the bucket tool to fill the background white, and export. Or if you want to go one stage further, then after that, use the select with the same colour tool, press delete (Making sure that your image has an alpha channel) add a new white layer, merge down and export as a jpg, png or whatever.

After you type your words you can draw a clipping mask over the desire object you want to crop having the same skew or the same angle of the letter A which will cover the Letter E and select both the masking path and the letters you want to clip in our case you will choose "AIRFORCE" and the path you drew. go the Object > Clipping Mask > Make

There are more than one solution. Two other online solutions with lots of polish are Wordle (1) and WordItOut (2). See also this for more resources. Some can generate code such as html or generate from a query instead of a site/document. Some can export to svg. There are surely many ways to do this. One way is with Processing (3). There is a library such ...

I recently converted 40 old FreeHand 3 files to Illustrator CC-2014. Since FreeHandMX can't open these natively, I had to use FreeHand 8 (via Sheepshaver.) I was then able to open these directly into AI using this new converter plugin: FreeHand Interface Plugin I also exported the FreeHand 8 files from FHMX as a PDF, and there is a difference in text ...
