Professional bitmap font editor : sharp as a pixel!

BitFonter is a full-featured bitmap font editor. It can import and export virtually any format bitmap font and can convert vector fonts into bitmap fonts.

With BitFonter you can do almost anything with bitmap fonts. You can design, edit or color them. You can apply special effects. And of course you can embed your bitmap fonts into TrueType or OpenType fonts with the help of FontLab or AsiaFont Studio.

Here are some key features of "BitFonter":
Font projects – organize fonts into projects for easier management
Bitmap font conversion – convert from any supported format to any other.
OpenType/TrueType fonts with embedded bitmaps – add bitmaps to existing fonts to improve screen text legibility in small font sizes. These fonts will work in Microsoft Office and other applications on Windows and Mac OS, with full Unicode and optional grayscale support.
Bitmap fonts for electronic devices – create fonts in a variety of formats usable in printers and imaging devices, mobile electronic devices, phones and electronic displays. Fonts created with BitFonter can be used on mobile operating systems such as Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and Symbian OS.
Professional image editing tools, transformations and filters – from Pencil to Gaussian blur.
Photofont® technology – create full-color fonts with transparency and use them on any Web page or in Photoshop®. Note: Requires a Photofont®-capable application such as the upcoming Photofont Start plugin.
Convert outline fonts into bitmap fonts – create sample versions of your TrueType or Type 1 fonts and distribute them without risk over the Internet.
Convert bitmaps and bitmap fonts to outline fonts – convert scanned images or digital photographs into outline fonts in minutes, create pixel fonts that work in Macromedia® Flash® (requires FontLab, AsiaFont Studio or TypeTool installed on the same computer).
Unicode support – multiple codepages and encodings, support for very large multilingual fonts.

What's New:
Kerning and metrics support for BDF and Photofont
Improved image separation process
