Thanks for making this so simple. I learned several things beyond Sprite fonts. Like CS2 Photoshop is free on Adobes site, the plugin for the effect, how to quickly make a sprite sheet, and that there is no mystery to Sprite Fonts.

Very nice. Would like to point out that CS2 is free for non commercial projects. Gimp is free for commercial and same thing can be done with gimp.

Would be great if you attached a .psd of the font sheet.

@DUTOIT,

I would, but I don't keep the PSD file of the actual sprite font sheet. I just keep the PSD of the the file I use to create each letter/number. That way my sizing and style is consistent if I need to add more objects.

That is the what I am talking about. The template, not the finished product :)
No stress, it is easy enough to do, just takes some time - thought it might save a few folks some time.

The "hardest" part will be learning to use CS2 and knowing other parameters - like I wouldn't have thought about "saving for the web" file bit. But this definitely opens my eyes to other ways to do things.

Holy crap, your voice is immediately recognizable because I watched every one of your Tevo Tarantula printer build videos!
