Re: Custom Fonts for GIMP

Lenny:

The answer is yes, maybe and no!

If you have a particular need put in a request.

Custom Font Tools (follow the link in my sig) have a range of options for copying and pasting if you have access to a similar pattern (or the original). Effects are also available - most often used are shine, emboss and bevel - to add that special bit of bling. Experience will tell you which ones have been used.

If the font was made by taking (with permission) the characters from an already existing alphabet then it is more difficult (but not impossible) to reproduce a viable end product.

Now may be the perfect opportunity to use a spare few hours to take the first steps.

Lenny: For most fonts, you can use any pattern.
Here is an example of font 649 with the motif of font 631. :cool:

Thanks skinnyhouse and Alan for the answers. That has long been a question on my mind. Although I will have to wait because I have other projects lined up, I can hardly wait to learn how to do this.

Since you guys and others on this thread are so talented, have you seen the request by Mahvin on Gimp Chat regarding redoing the G'MIC font for his project? The post is at http://gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=18179

I looked at the G'MIC logo font and think it is beautiful, but perhaps some of that bling you spoke of could be incorporated.
GIMP Learn rocks...
