    Gill Sans trouble

    Hi

    I've got a site I've designed in Photoshop using GS Regular. But when I try using the same font in Flash, it's a lot lighter. If I faux bold it, it's too heavy and doesn't look good. Is my only option to create the titles in Phtoshop and import them?

    Thanks

    Have you tried all the settings? In Photoshop you get "smooth, strong, crisp" etc and in flash you get the "anti-alias for animation/readability" etc. Do none of the settings match?

    Are you positioning your type on whole numbers/ integer co-ordinates?
    ie. x=10, y=10 rather than x=13.13, y= 17.7 - that will make a big difference

    Personaly I'd stay away from faux bolding at all costs.

    Hypocritically... what does Gill Sans Light with faux bold look like?
