Font weight change?

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Marion Sherman Howard, Jul 29, 2003.

  1. Is there a way to change the weight of any font in Photoshop? Aside
    from the normal/bold, etc. options, is there a way I can play with the
    weight?

    Thanks for any help.

    If you rasterize the type, then select it, then expand (or contract)
    the selection, then yes, you can change the weight. But you will not
    be able to edit the type after rasterizing it.

    Also, consider that anything you can do with filters and plug ins can
    also be done to type.

    From the Character palette (click the little "page" icon on the Options
    Bar) you can choose faux bold. The text will still be editable but you
    won't be able to use text warp with it.
