Create Font using PNG files

I want to create my own Font using some images that formatted as .PNG.

is there any tool to create fonts using this method or anyway to do this ?
because i’m more comfortable to create characters in Photoshop and save them as .PNG

Thanks,

What type of designs do you have, and in what context do you want to use your font?

Yes, you can totally use images to create a font that will retain the textures and colors of your images – if that’s what you want. There is a new font format called OpenType-SVG that lets you do this (so the output will be actually be a bitmap font).

Photoshop CC 2017 supports OpenType-SVG fonts and you could leverage your PS skills to create fonts with Fontself, an add-on that runs within Photoshop (I am one of its creators 😉

Having said that, if you don’t need the shades and just want to export a vector font that you can use in any other app, you could also trace your image letters into vector Shape Layers, and export them as a regular vector OpenType font, also using Fontself for Photoshop.

Have a look at the creative process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUM8MlMkeMI

Whatever the tool, have fun 😉
