create a font from your handwriting !





gonzo
yes, amazing and true

Write out all desired characters in a grid, scan, highlight, process, save. Now you have a TrueType or preferably Type1 font in your own handwriting!


Cool

gonzo, there are other forums in frihost.

General Chat isn't for everything. Maybe I should ask Bondings to put General Chat right at the BOTTOM.

I put it in general chat because non-technical people frequently ask if its possible. As such they'll not see this thread. oh well.

There's a 'search' button. And FriHost forum has pretty nice archives.

Cheers,

Wow, this is very sweet! Now I can get this and have my friend make all his gangster handwriting an actual font for my computer which looks really cool! Its probably worth the 2 or 3 hundred dollars to buy this

Thats insane!! Really cool idea... Except My hand writing sucks so bad I wouldnt wanna do it.

But I wonder if they have archives of user submitted text characters.. would be cool to see what other peoples looks like.

you can edit the vector after scanning! And there's two little known features in the opentype specification that allows 'automatic' variation of letters (assuming you scanned in variations for a given letter)

But its BEST to use Type 1 format!!

Oh thank you! I always wanted to make my own font but I don't want to buy expensive font-makers. Thanks a lot for that link.
