    Creating Fonts?

    Hi guys,

    If I created a font style in photoshop, does anyone know how I would make it so it was an actual font, instead of just an image?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    you need an application that will convert it to a font format. Macromedia makes one of the best called Fontographer. But they haven't updated in several years. There may be other out there, but I'm unfamiliar with any others - only ever used Fontographer.

    it seems like corel draw used to be able to make fonts way back around ver 5, but it wasn't very good, compared to fontagrapher... if you want professional results, ie: hinting, kerning, etc, you need a full blown program to do it.
