This PSD file will demo Photoshop text with various layer effects applied to each PSD layer. Both text elements and effects are not widely supported in many common environments, this makes testing an essiential part of your workflow when working with text and effects.
Shape Effects Support
This PSD shows support for Label text in your design with various layer effects applied to each. Text elements are native to most environments but both text and effects are rendered differently in each browser and device.
Safe Text is designed to give you a pixel-perfect export with web-based outputs, where Text Layers are converted similar to your design – read more.
Use Valid Text Layers
When text layers do not render correctly, the first thing to check is the size of the element in Layers View – read more.
Change Your Text Names
Photoshop will use the text contents of layers as the name, this is not always valid – read more.
Do Not Scale Text
This is possibly the most common designer error. If you design changes and your text needs to become larger – do not scale the text, but rather change the font size – read more.
Use Correct Text Settings
If you have display errors that are text related, you should double check your font size and line-height size in Photoshop – read more.
Caution With Effect Size
Depending on your effect and the angle, your element size may change to reflect the effect applied to the element – read more.
