Platforms/Versions

Q1:Is it possible to give a layered document to someone if they don't have my fonts?
A1: Yes. The type will still show up, but they will not be able to edit it. If they attempt to edit the type, Photoshop will tell them that the font is not installed and must be replaced. To avoid this, rasterize the type (Layer>Rasterize>Type) before sending the file (but keep a copy with the original Type layers for yourself!).
Q2:What is the best way to deal with type from older versions of Photoshop? When I open a document that I created in an earlier version, I get a message about updating Type layers. Should I update or not?
A2: That depends on whether you want to edit the Type layers or not. If you don't click the Update button in the warning dialog, you will see your Type layer when the document opens; but before you are able to edit it, you'll have to update the text anyway. Don't worry about updating the layer(s) as you open the document, because as soon as you double-click on the Type layer to edit it, Photoshop will do the updating for you. Note: When you update the type, the look of the type might change slightly.
