    You can try to obtain the original fonts used and install them on your system, or replace the fonts in the file with other fonts that you already own. What is the file type? You may ask the person who created the doent to resave it in a format where the fonts are rasterized, which would not require the enduser to have the fonts.

    to work around the situation i took your second piece of advice
    and matched some fonts to the original, and second i received
    a tiff image as well as the layered image so used the tiff with the fonts embedded.

    if someone were to receive a file
    would they be able to produce the text the same if they rasterized
    the fonts vs. flattened the image.
    or simply put
    is rasterizing and flattening the same as converting to paths in freehand

    thank you

    jlynn,

    Flattening rasterizes the whole image into a single layer, but you can also rasterize (simplify in Elements parlance) a single layer if you want to send the layered doent, but still have the fonts changed to pixels instead of vectors, to avoid the types of conflicts you described. Rasterized fonts will retain the appearance of the orignial font type, but will not be editable.

    It is not the same as converting to paths. Paths are vector outlines of the font that can be read on a machine without the fonts. Rasterizing converts the entire font to pixels, so you will get pixellation if you zoom way in or enlarge a lot.
