Have you ever wondered why the font size is always so inconsistent in Photoshop? Sometimes you type in some text and then you set the font size to 12 pt or points. But it’s not even close to being 12 points and the text so tiny that you can barely read it. Other times, 12 points is gigantic. So why isn’t a 12 point text in Photoshop the same size as a 12 point text would be in other software like Microsoft Word? In this Photoshop tutorial, I’ll explain to you why that’s happening and how you can fix it.

Can’t play videos – could somebody write the summary of vid?


For web development, what would be the appropriate width and height to get consistency between the font size on websites and the font size in Photoshop?

Thank you Denny!

I watched the video several times stopped at each step and did exactly as you said, it flat out doesn’t work. The correct statistics were in there to begin with but I re entered them. I had a couple of buddies with the same issue follow your video and it didn’t work for them either.
