I'm not sure if I should ask the question here or on the questions forum, but where or how do you install the custom fonts after you have downloaded them?

Make a folder for them (I named mine "Custom Fonts". I placed this folder in my gimp user directory. Then put all your custom fonts in that folder. When you run the Custom Font script. It will ask in the dialog box the script name, and location. Enter the information so the script can find it.

I really enjoyed Ed's Mummy text effect and thought it really is great for Halloween. I decided to make a font so you don't have to go through all the steps for a few words each time. Added numbers and a few punctuation items that are frequently used. I hope you like it. It was a lot of fun making it as was doing Ed's tutorial!

Thank you very much, Nancy. It is fun. Remember, after you have read a bit and played with it, just ask if there are problems. Some things can be done in different ways so we all don't do it exactly the same.
