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.

Mac OS X Lion (10.7) Compatibility

 

We are working hard to update all of our software products for Apple’s newly released version of Mac OS X (v. 10.7, called Lion)

Over the next few days we will announce the updates as they become available and will be offered as free updates to our existing customers.

All of our test show that there are no major issues with any of our existing products running on Lion. Most of the problems we’ve seen so far are related to then user interface (window refreshes, controls not drawing correctly, etc.)

If you have any questions or concerns about any of our products then please feel free to contact us here.

What we do

I recently had my brother and his wife in town for a visit. We had a great time just hangin out and getting caught up. At one point in our conversation his wife asked “now what exactly do you do?” I love that question (and I get it a lot) because it gives me a chance to talk about some of the ways we’ve been able to help people with the frustrations and difficulties of dealing with fonts. I know that may sound strange, but I guess I’m wired that way.

My thinking is that when people are happy with their fonts (or at least not having problems with them) they can get back to what they’re good at  – art, design, production, whatever they bought their Mac for in the first place.

Inevitably in a conversation about what what we do, I mention the software and what it does.

Here’s the run down…

FontDoctor for Macintosh

As the name suggests, FontDoctor will diagnose and fix font problems – things like missing bitmaps fonts, missing PostScript fonts, damaged fonts, fonts that just don’t work on your system, etc. It can also organize your font files into a new clean font library by family, foundry, name, etc.

FontXChange for Macintosh

FontXChange converts fonts between different font formats. You can switch between OpenType, PostScript Type 1, TrueType, etc. This is great because as older formats become obsolete (PostScript Type 1, TrueType) you can still use your fonts by converting them to the newer OpenType format. Also, it will convert between different computers – Mac to Windows and vice-versa.

FontGenius for Macintosh

FontGenius looks at images that contain typography, like photographs, online pics, etc., and will identify the most likely font family. It also provides download links to fonts that are identified. Very cool.

FontVista for Macintosh

FontVista finds all your fonts, installed or not, and creates a catalog of font samples. The catalog can be saved as a PDF that you can share with your clients and/or printer, or you can print it out to create a reference book.
