Photoshop - Mac to Windows font problems
on Aug 8, 2005 at 2:58:38 am

Hello all-

I am working with a client on a Director project. He has "built" the interface in Photoshop using a well organized layered file. Fantastic.

He sent me the finished product on a disc with the fonts he used. Only problem is that they are Mac fonts (.bmap) and I am a Windows user. Due to timing and the way we do business, contacting the client about this is (annoyingly and unfortunately) out of my control.

I wish I knew more about graphic design software and terminology, but I do not.

I know that sometimes when I recieve artwork from clients in Illustrator format, the fonts are not real text at all - the fonts have been "outlines" so that you dont have to have the font installed on the computer that views the file but you still get the appropriate font in the artwork.

I have access to a Mac.

But it does not have Photoshop. =(

I wonder if the trial Photoshop download for Mac would be able to help me out of this mess?

Any ideas?
