wingdings, webdings, zapf dingbats...any more?

Hi,

Are there any more fonts like wingdings, webdings, zapf dingbats that give icons/symbols?

Also these 3 - they are bundled in my photoshop so I am presuming there are no copyright issues for a commercial site.

Thanks

1) Yes! There are plenty, try these free places to start: http://www.fontfreak.com/ding-a.htm, http://www.fontgarden.net/dingbats/, and http://www.fontfile.com/fonts/Dingbats/go.php (last one is slow, but has huge variety. For paid ones (you may want to go this route if you are producing commercial work), take a look at http://www.myfonts.com/browse/category/myfonts/picture/ and http://www.myfonts.com/browse/category/myfonts/symbol/

2) Essentially, buried in the forms that you clicked "I Agree" to when you were installing, was an agreement that Adobe gives you permission to use the fonts on the computer where Photoshop is installed, but you may not share the font file itself with others, or place it on other machines where no licensed copy of Photoshop or other Adobe products resides.

Cheers,

thx - i'll check those url's tonight.

About the licence - sounds a bit dodgy - but Word has those fonts too so I guess most machines would be ok. But to be safe I suppose i'll have to buy the fonts with a commercial licence .... oh well.

There's no issue with using any of the fonts supplied with Photoshop for commercial work, so long as you don't go into the fonts directory and copy the font file itself and share it with others. You have to be careful with free font sites, because some of them do just that (they usually say something like "the fonts are free to download, but these fonts may be used only for personal use"). I tried to give you some pretty reliable ones.

Hi,

I've looked through a lot of sets and am going to keep searching [found lots of good stuff so far]. I just wondered if you might know of a set that contains a good icon to match a 'Videos' category in a search engine?

The best I could manage is to use the forward, back, fast forward, rewind, stop and pause symbolsin combinations - but they do not look as nice as the other ones I managed to glean for my other pages.

An image of a VHS cassette might do well if I could find one.

Regards,

macuser
