Training in Font Management
lynda.com, the company that specializes in self-paced career and computer training in digital media and design, today introduced Font Management...
October 16, 2006 -- With literally thousands of fonts now available for download, itâ€™s no wonder that nearly every designer needs a system for managing them. In "Font Management," Ted LoCascio discusses various font types, where to download both free and for-purchase fonts online, and how to manually manage fonts on both the Mac and Windows platforms. He also profiles a number of third-party font management applications, including Suitcase, FontAgent Pro, Font Book, Font Reserve, and Linotype FontExplorer, and explains how to handle fonts for print output and electronic distribution.
"Font management is something that affects every software application used by designers. Itâ€™s great to separate this issue into its own training course, as it really is an important standalone subject. Cross-platform issues are equally significant, as many designers work on Macs, yet share files with clients who use Windows. Ted LaCascio is an adept guide through these challenging issues, and we expect this course will have wide appeal and importance," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Anyone with an Internet connection can access Font Management by subscribing to lynda.comâ€™s Online Training Libraryâ„¢. A separate DVD version of Font Management is scheduled for release in late October.
