Hi everyone!

Could anyone pls tell me the way to use Mac fonts in Windows based photoshop? Is there any software in the market that do the task? or is it possible thou?

And is there anyone that could tell me how to convert a bitmap image to a vector based illustration? If yes, how?

Thank you very much.

hi there,

answer 1:

go get yourself some free progs like fontconverter or crossfont, they will do your job. another very cool proggie is fontographer (which also allows u to create ur own fonts) from adobe, but u have to pay for that! the free ones u can find at fontfreak...

answer 2:

many vector based paint tools have an option to convert bitmaps to vector art, e.g. freehand from macromedia. a tool, which is only used for converting bitmaps to vector is corel trace. but don't expect much from these progs, cause u still have to do a lot of tweaking by youself, cause these transform-tools get the vertex-count reaaallllyyy f****ing high and a printer who is ripping for hours and then crashes, is no fun....

peace out,
