I can't find the 'perfect' font for a particular logo. How would I go about creating my own?
I have Illustrator and Photoshop.
Assuming I could create a set of alphabetic characters, would I be able to use them via Photoshop in the same way other PS fonts work?
Just for the record---- No backhanded comments will be coming out of my post
with that being said,
all I did was:
1. write out the words, and letters I needed for my project,
2. used an app called "genius scan" and scanned(took a picture) of the words, and emailed myself that document in pdf form.
3. I opened that PDF in illustrator, then used image trace
4. I clicked Expand, and VOILA~ paths, and points galore
I hope this helped, or at least made sense.
My issue is that I am not trying to make a font using any typical alphabet. I have already designed my "font" in Photoshop (it's a code I've been writing in by hand that began in high school, 20 years ago, I can now read & write it fluently), but think of it more as symbols or wingdings. Now, all I need is to bring them to life as an actual font. Is there a free online tool where I can upload each image to make this happen?
I recently became disabled and can no longer handwrite. I'd really like to get this going. Please, no snarky responses!
Seriously check out _Frans and MiguelSousa's solution, FontSelf. It now supports PHOTOSHOP!!! Just installed it. Good luck!
