Hello hello, Happy Wednesday to everyone! 🙂
Two things today – PhotoshopLightroomTV Day! and OpenType in Photoshop.
1. Starting with another Episode of PhotoshopLightroomTV, go to PhotoshopLightroomTV website to watch it! Great resource for learning Photoshop and Lightroom and it is FREE! 😉 Find out how to use Graduated Filter and Adjustment Brush in Lightroom! Very very nice.
2. Adobe together with Microsoft (something a bit unusual) developed a cross-platform font file called OpenType.
OpenType format uses a single font file for Windows and Mac, which is a great feature because you do not need two different versions of the font. You can move files from one platform to another without worrying about font substitution.
OpenType in supported in Photoshop CS4 and CS5 and it offers expanded character sets. It also offers expanded layout features, for example discretionary ligatures which are not available in TrueType and PostScript fonts. Thanks to that, OpenType provides advanced typography control.
More information on OpenType can be found on the Adobe website. Here is the link – OpenType.
I hope you enjoyed that. See you tomorrow! 🙂
