Typefaces are all about simplicity.
And for many people, the ability to change a font from one to the next can be the most important thing in a computer application.
So how do you create a vintage font in a day?
Here’s a quick guide on how to do it.
You’ll need Adobe Photoshop CS3 and the FreeType font editor.
Download the Adobe font editor and save the files to your computer’s typeface folder.
Open the FreeTyp file in Adobe Photoshop.
Click the Convert to type icon and select Adobe FreeType.
Choose File > Save to Save to.
Save the FreeTypes file to your desktop, then open it in Photoshop.
Open FreeType in Photoshop again and click the Convert button.
Open up the Free Types dialog box and select the Free Type you saved in Photoshop, then click OK.
Next, you’ll need to download the vintage typefaces font.
The FreeType program is available free from the Adobe Typekit site.
You can download it for free from Adobe’s website.
You may have to install the program first to see how to download fonts for free.
Open your desktop in Photoshop and right-click on the Free Typ file you downloaded earlier.
Open Typeface > Font Properties > Font Name.
Select the Free type font you saved earlier and click OK to confirm the font name.
Open Photoshop and click Font Size to size the font.
You should see a new font size in Photoshop’s font viewer window.
Close the Free Fonts dialog box.
You can now use the FreeFont font on your webpage.
If you have a free version of Adobe Photoshop, the font will be available to you on the Adobe website for download.
If not, you can always use Photoshop’s free version.
The best part about using Adobe’s FreeType is that you don’t have to purchase the fonts.
You just need to save the fonts to a file and then convert them to your own fonts.
The fonts will be saved to your typeface’s type library, so you can use them on any webpage.
You don’t need to purchase Adobe’s fonts to use them.
This is one of the most powerful tools available for creating vintage type.
FreeType can be downloaded free from these sites: Adobe Typekits.
