    Your explanation is a little confusing. The only thing I can say is Windows and OS X render fonts differently. OS X renders fonts to be as true to the source as possible, whereas Windows ignores certain data in an effort to make fonts clearer to read on-screen, so you're not seeing the same thing. However, I'd expect them to both render a picture the same, so the text in the finished image should look the same (subject to color profiles and all that).

    I don't understand. Are you creating a font or is a font not displaying correctly?

    Smile I am trying to create an image with some text on in it.
    I am trying to create an image on windows OS with some text on it in the same font as other images that are created on macintosh with the same font. however when i try to create images with the same effect on windows os, the colour effects are the same but the font effect is not the same as that of mac os i.e. the font is not displaying correctly. i have the same font on both the machines but still the output is different. i hope that clarifies the situation issue.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    You're down, I believe, to the differences in font rendering. can you take screenshots of the two fonts and post them? That'd confirm it or get things on the right direction.

    Try saving them as image files (rather than taking a screenshot) and post those up.
