Why is the text size in my Output different from my PSD?« Back to Questions List

Short Answer

Export Kit corrects the size in HTML to match your PSD design visually, this will allow your PSD to match almost pixel-for-pixel with Photoshop.

IMPORTANT: All browsers and devices render fonts and sizes differently so must – test, test, test!

Do Not Scale Text

A very common reason for this may be that your Text is scaled in your design, DO NOT scale text.

Redraw Text Layers

If your text layer is giving you trouble, a quick solution is to redraw the text layer:

1. Double click your current text layer
2. Select and copy the text inside your layer
3. Select the type tool
4. Draw a new text layer with the same size and position
5. Paste text contents inside the new text layer
6. Rename the new text layer to match the previous
7. Remove the previous text layer

Long Answer

Photoshop and HTML are not the same. Your PSD will render perfectly visually, while HTML will render perfectly via code. There are many graphical differences with your PSD and your Browser, so there are situations where your content will not render the exact same as your PSD.

Fonts are a major issue when rendering to devices as all devices including browsers will render fonts differently. There is no such thing as a "safe" font, even Arial will not render the same in various browsers.

We have a PSD template to test this specific issue: http://exportkit.com/learn/psd-templates/basic-rendering/ek125_202_font_text_rendering.  Export and test in all browsers, you will quickly see that the same font renders differently in both style and size as you open the page in each browser.
ADVANCED USAGE: You can disable this feature anytime via the option Safe Text.  Use caution when you disable this as your Text may not output as expected.
