Anyone know a good way to create a set of gifs that represent a font, e.g. I want helvetica 12pt in blue, each letter as a gif named after the letter (e.g. a.gif, b.gif, etc), or something similair?

A gimp script-fu, or handy utility will do the job, I don't want to do it by hand!

Cheers,

Leon

Looks perfect, although I don't have gimp on this machine to try, so I'll have to wait and see. It's pretty old, so fingers-crossed.

I won't accept yet, in case I can't get it top work, and someone comes up with something else.

Cheers,

Leon

Sorry for any confusion,

I hadn't seen GIMP before, it does look interesting !!!  That is all I meant.

aha. GIMP is very cool. There is even a binary for win32 if you look hard enough.

I couldn't get it to work with my win-32 gimp, but I never tried very hard as it became unimportant (as things tend to in my office!).

Anyway, the script obviously does what I want, and probably works fine if I put the time in, so I'll accept this.

Cheers xberry!
