photoshop - see newest tutorials - got a nice video on it.
photoshop CS2 can be downloaded for free from adobe is for non comercial use though.

Gimp, same thing can make some awesome bitmap fonts.
Found this site 4 days ago, pretty cool.

But tutorial is best bet, can be done with gimp (free commercial use)

The tool "Give Your Fonts Mono" also makes monotone fonts, but it is designed for Construct's Sprite Fonts, and can allow you to add extra space for adding colors and outlines all at once in an editor. (Makes PNG files)

See my tutorial for more about it, and much more on Constructs Sprite fonts. (has a FAQ at the end)

Sorry - lack of sleep. Are you talking about creating font sprites for construct 2.
All my font sprites are .png

Or you can individually create your own fonts in gimp/photoshop.

Edit: Give Your Fonts Mono as discussed above is nice tool. You can generate your font sprites with whatever tool. Open your font graphic in photoshop and apply style to it - there are 1000's of free styles, you will never have to create your own - trust me.
And I always save as .pngDUTOIT2013-10-27 12:04:59
