Everything that’s fit to link


Jimmy thinks this guy’s a squatter, I argue that he/she is doing something with it.

Btw, Bickham Script Pro rocks. Too bad for lack of Open Type support in Photoshop.

Photoshop has full OT support as far as I know. Just no Glyph Pallette.

Really? I can’t find a way to place glyph variants in Photoshop CS. There’s not glyph palette, yes. But even when I use the Character Map and try to put in certain glyphs from there, there’s a message, “This application does not support glyph variants.” on the Character Map utility.

Would love to find out how to put in variants in PS. I’ve been doing it in Illustrator and then exporting for web.

hi there, happen to find your blog thru the search engine. find it very enriching and informative to read. have been reading your blog for the past 1 week. (^_^)

kinda keen: what’s open type?

Open Type, best known for being a cross platform font format. Open Type fonts come with cool typographic features such as swash capitals, alternates, ligature, small caps, glyph variants, osf, lining figures, tabular figures, etc…

Now, my problem is that I can’t get to the rest of the glyph variants in photoshop. I only have one of each variant, when I turn Contextual / Stylistic Alternates on. Bickham has about 5 glyph variants for each letter.

The Guardian newspaper is going on a total makeover - including entirely new type.

I can place only one Bickham variant/glyph in my Photoshop CS doc. I am looking for the ornaments and when I checked out the character map it states UE35D For Private Use as the characters but there’s no way for me to ALT/OPTON that to place the glyph!!! I am frustrated with no glyph palette in PS CS2 as well. Anybody ever figure out how to do that, please let us all know!

I’m still doing it in Illustrator and pasting it in Photoshop. *rolls eyes*.

Hope this helps.

And yes, I would like to know how to do it directly in Photoshop too!
