Just to keep you inspired…

The Evolution of Fonts

In Photoshop Creative Cloud 2017, Adobe added the ability to use bitmap fonts. What’s a bitmap font? It’s basically an alpha turned into a font! Yes, you can actually type with your alphas.

How does it work? The font must be created and saved as a bitmap font. Then you can install it just like any fonts. I highly recommend only installing bitmap fonts when you are actually using them. They are very large files, much larger than traditional vector fonts. So they can take up a lot of your computer processing power. So if you plan on using bitmap fonts a lot, a font manager could be a great investment. Then you can simply enable and disable the fonts with a click as you need them.

Now that your font is loaded, it works just like a regular font. Just type away and as long as that alpha has the characters, you can type your titles using the font! I love this new feature. Now the trick is finding some bitmap fonts out there!

So, I’ve converted one of my old alphas to a bitmap font for you to play with. If you are interested in a font conversion service, you can email me or jump over to my store. (Designers too!)

The July Digi Files — Our Apologies

Due to some personal and family issues, the July Digi Files will be coming out a bit late this month. Please accept our apologies. We expect to have everything ready by early next week. And don’t worry, we’ll extend a grace period for downloads. No need to fear…your monthly digi fix is on the way!
