Re: Custom Fonts for GIMP

Following my previous post viewtopic.php?p=38698#p38698
Here is the second one which seems to be the most well know as per Wikipedia: "This is possibly the most instantly recognisable Macleod tartan. It is known as MacLeod of Lewis, MacLeod dress, and even "Loud MacLeod"."
And yes I did the pattern as well as written on Wikipedia with the symmetrical threadcount "K32Y4K32Y48R4" and with the color palette of black 101010, freedom red C80000, and golden poppy D8B000.

Great tartan Patrice - looks good on the characters. :thumbsup:

Totally agree with you about the need for kerning. If you are building a custom font for just one caption you may as well position characters manually. That was the idea behind one of the options in the Layers with Forced Margins - just to create a small subset of characters for use as a throw-away custom font.

Kerning is a mind-numbing task. I promise myself never to do kerning paths every time I finish a custom font.
But...
