FontGenius 2.7

Today we released version 2.7 of FontGenius for Mac (10.7+) and  Windows (7, 8, and 10).

What’s new?

The usual round of fixes are there, and we’ve improved the image manipulation features and font database.

FontGenius examines pictures and identifies typefaces of any text within a picture. Using advanced recognition technology, FontGenius will produce a list of likely fonts that match selected characters within an image, and will generate character previews of the matched fonts.

Using the matched results, a search can be performed on the internet or your own computer to locate, download, or purchase matched fonts.

We are excited to announce an upcoming webcast with Extensis where we will demo FontGenius along with some other awesome font management tools.

It’s on Wednesday, February 9 at 11:00 AM Pacific Time.

The New Instagram for Type Lovers

An up & coming app for your iPhone or iTouch – Fontli is the new Instagram for type lovers. It functions nearly the same, with a news feed, page for popular images, a picture feed for friends & the ability to share images on both Facebook & Twitter. Users also have the ability, however, to tag typefaces & add fonts as favorites.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Fontli is still a work in progress. We think it will, hopefully, only improve over time as more type loving folks download the app & begin uploading photos.

And did we mention its free???

You can check it out at www.fontli.com

Introducing FontPad Server

FontGear Inc. announced today the first release of FontPad Server.

FontPad is an internet server that manages web fonts.

FontPad Server provides a safe, controlled, and protected way to serve your own web fonts through an industrial-strength software solution. Built exclusively for serving web fonts, FontPad Server includes all the features you need to take control of your valuable web fonts assets.

FontPad Server allows you to specify exactly which internet domains are allowed to use your web fonts, and which font sets are used on allowed web pages.

Industry standard secure technology serves encrypted font data to the internet and eliminates hackers and leaches looking to rip-off your valuable font files.

To use FontPad Server, web page designers include a simple CSS link in their web pages that automatically requests web fonts from your domain (not a font-rental service).

FontPad Server includes all the features you would expect from a professional server, including customizable Page Not Found (404) response, support for HTTP and HTTPS, domain blocking and control, data throughput graphing and activity logs, and more.

FontPad Server is available for Macintosh (Mac OS X 10.6.x +), Windows (XP, Vista, 7), and Linux (3.0.0/Ubunt 11.x)
