Design the Web: Simulating Web Text

with Chris Converse

Video: Introduction to the project

(music playing) Hi, this is Chris Converse, and this is a course on simulating web text inside of Photoshop. We are going start by creating character and paragraph styles so we can style content on our web canvas and then we are also going to take a look at how anti-aliasing changes across different browsers and platforms, and then use different anti-alias settings inside of Photoshop to match what our clients might be looking at, whether it be Windows, mobile devices, or the Macintosh. So I hope this course sounds interesting to you and if so, let's get started.
