Hi Experts

I am trying to replicate the font on the following website - I know its in perpetua which I am using in Photoshop but when I type it in it looks too sharp.  If you look at the link and look at the right hand image with the text "November 14 2006" - its the same font but it looks a lot smoother.  Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

KIM

Thanks alot ! that did the trick.  As the question is for 500 points would you know how to alter an image from my digital camera to be similar in colour to the one of the couple in the link.  Its seems to be toned down a hue that is similar to colours used on the website.  As you can see I am no designer just a mere web developer!!!

Well... that is a seperate question all together!

However, you culd try opening it in PS and adjusting the RGB settings then play around with the curves to create a constant contrast.

Image > adjustment > Hue saturation / Colour balances / Curves (In that order)


Kind regards
