Using 3rd Party Fonts By Inserting them as a graphic - FrontPage 2002

Posted on 2005-04-06
Last Modified: 2013-12-24
My website ( current has some "metallic" looking titles eg the index page which contains the title "Diesel House Studios".

I realise that it is rather cumbersome to display embedded 3rd party fonts, and so to date I have saved the text in programs such as Photoshop (well....a friend has) in jpg format and then inserted the text as a graphic file, thus getting round potential embedding issues.

Is there a relatively cheap app (obviously not Photoshop!!) where I could create an 'image' (jpg) which would in effect be text saved as a graphic file?

    You could try Paintshop as well.  They have a free trial to see if you like it

    Try Macromedia Fireworks.

    Is there not a small/specialist app that will convert text to a graphic file anywhere on the net as I don't really want to load Fireworks/Paintshop on my computer??

    If there is not any easy way, is there a ROBUST method of embedding fonts that will not add any significant time to the pages when they load?  Again, I would need your instructions on how to insert the code...

    Thanks again,

    Hi David,

    - What do you mean by embedding fonts?  (Normal fonts or converting font into pictrure)

    In terms of loading.  When you convert the font into picture,  the picture size will be small,  so basically it will not affect the loading of the page.

    Instructions on how to insert the code:
    - Convert the font into picture
    - Save it as Jpg or gif
    - Open Frontpage and insert the picture

    If you want to make it manually
    - Import the picture to your web
    - Add the following code where you want the picture to appear:
    <img src="ImageFolder/ImageName.gif">
    You can also specify size:
    <img src="ImageFolder/ImageName.gif" width="138" height="152">

    I really don't know small programs to do that.  I know only Photoshop, Fireworks, PaintShop.  You can search google for "Convert Text To Picture"  you will get lot of programs that are small and cheap in price.

    There is an online free converter that converts the text you input into BMP.  But, the number of fonts is limited.  Try it.
