Custom Font Tools - The Guide Part 2

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 20 Apr 2019, 22:20


Custom Font Face Modifying Tools

These tools apply various filters to all the character layers in a custom font file to hopefully add something extra to the font’s appearance. You can of course apply filters manually one layer at a time – if you have enough will-power.

Custom Font Effects Only:

This is probably the most useful tool. It has options for applying an emboss, a bumpmap (taken from an additional layer), a shine and a bevel to every character in a custom font.

The effects can be applied in any combination – but of course multiple effects add to the time taken to complete the process.

This tool provides a quick way of applying some of Gimp’s Artistic filters to all the character layers namely the Canvas filter, the Cartoon filter, the Cubism filter, the Glass Tile filter and the Oilify legacy filter.

Custom Font Noise Pack
This tool provides a quick way of applying some of Gimp’s Noise filters to character layers to add texture and interest to character faces. Think glow, grunge and fairy dust.
