In Photoshop, you can add jitter to brush settings, so opacity, size, etc., change within a range while drawing.
I’m curious if anyone knows of a method for creating jitter for kerning and tracking, so that a piece of text has randomized kerning/tracking values throughout without having to go through and edit the kerning and tracking every few characters.
Photoshop solutions or otherwise would be great! Thanks.
Here is a script for InDesign which allows you to randomize the tracking of the individual characters selected text.
The script has two settings:
minTracking which sets the lowest allowed tracking and
maxTracking which sets the highest allowed tracking.
- Copy the script and paste it into a text editor.
- Edit the two settings to fit your needs.
- Save the script as a
.jsxfile and place it in the folder with your other userscripts. (You can find them by right-clicking the User folder in the Scripts panel and choose Reveal in Explorer/Finder.)
- Make a text selection or select a text frame.
- Locate and double-click the script in the Scripts panel.
- The script will fail if you try to run it with no open document, without having any text selected or if you have a selection which contains other objects (and maybe more). Different checks could be added to account for these situations.
- An interface could be added to make it easier to choose other settings.
