Developers using Photoshop to design website — can now use Google Web Fonts. In a November 8, blog post David Kuettel, Technical Lead, Google Web Fonts, announced that “Extensis has added support for Google Web Fonts to their Web Font Plug-in for Photoshop. Now, the entire catalog of Google Web Fonts (with over 280 font families) is only a click or two away!”
The Web Font Plug-in for Photoshop CS5+ lets you design with the same web fonts you will use to ‘go live’.
“In addition to making the entire catalog of Google Web Fonts easily accessible, the plug-in takes advantage of the full power of Suitcase Fusion 3. This means that any web fonts you choose to use for your designs are automatically kept up to date, and fully activated as needed. For example, this makes it easy for you to send your Photoshop files around to your coworkers and not worry whether they have the font(s) installed — it will “just work”!,” informs David.
