Type Tool

Type Tool was probably the hardest tool I had to implement. Not because of complexity of programming, but because of compatibility with PSD format. The problem was finally solved and Photopea can edit text layers of PSD created by Photoshop, and Photoshop can edit text layers of PSD created by Photopea.

There may be a slight difference in text layers rendered by Photoshop and Photopea. While Photoshop rounds text coordinates to whole pixels, Photopea keeps the coordinates as floating point nubmers, so spaces between lines or between words may be slightly different.


Photopea has its own fonts, stored at the web server. Additional fonts must be Drag'n'dropped by user. Photopea can not access local fonts (e.g. C:\Windows\Fonts on Windows) automatically.

Whenever you edit text layer with missing font, it is rendered by substitute font. Feel free to edit such text layer and save it, Photopea keeps the information about original font, so you can re-render it later (in Photopea or Photoshop, when font is available).
