ScanFont takes bitmap images such as photos, scanned handwriting samples, clipart, removes the background; separates the characters; autotraces the glyphs into vector characters; and exports them into a TrueType, OpenType or Type 1 font where they can be edited by a font editor. ScanFont is a plugin for Fontlab's series of font editors - TypeTool, FontLab Studio, and AsiaFont Studio. Version 5 supports grayscale and color, adds direct import of EPS graphics, exports .VFB format fonts, features transformations and filters from Pencil to Gaussian blur. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
