Why text size is different in these 2 files in Photoshop?

I’m working on Adobe Photoshop(2019-2020).

In one file Arial Regular font size 12pt texts looks normal as in below image:

Arial regular 12pt

But in the another file the at size 11pt the text is very big as shown in the next image:

Arial regular 11pt

How to change the settings to get text size back to normal as in first image?


A point (pt) is a physical size and it depends on the document resolution. I imagine between two your documents it’s not the same.

Select your first document, go to Image > Image Size to get its Resolution, then switch to the second one (the one you want to change) and in the same window change the Resolution value to the same as your first doc.

And make sure Resample is turned off, otherwise the dimensions of the document will also change.
