3 Ways to create a new font from scratch



More detail on this method at http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/inkscape-dings/

If you don't have Inkscape or find this too difficult then you can use the "quick and easy" Handwriting font creator: "Free online tool to create a vector font from your own handwriting."


Now dedicated for  t the hard core geek there's "FontForge" but Warning! this tool is not really user friendly - but a lot powerful, that is ... if you manage to use it.

Image quest (update)

Update to the previous post  : images-quest

Last time I was mentioning the case where you would have a picture and would like to retrieve its source - Now, I'd like to talk about another case, when you made a picture, posted it a while ago and want to know - How it spreads over the Internet (aka who stole it).

First a little comment about the website I was mentioning in the last post, which was nearly 2 years ago - As you may have noticed some website have disappeared, some have improved and some are in between (experiencing turbulence).

One star has emerged though, TinEye.com this website isn't trying to find similar images (like images.google.com would but match precisely the image uploaded. It now also exist as FireFox a add-on! One interesting use is to track the spread of images and memes across the Internet. Perfect for the job.


Now what to do if you find some art thief using your Design, logo, pictures, photos ?

That's where YTWWN comes into action - This blog is here for users who discovered that somebody else is using their creative work, and publish the perpetrators on this website.
