[Image-SIG] write text on a picture (PIL fonts)
Fri, 9 May 2003 11:49:09 -0500
Over the years I've located several different collections
of PIL fonts. I've uploaded them to temporary location at:
I think most of the files are self-explanatory. I haven't
tested these extensively, just saved them when I came across
them. I have used the COURIER NEW 300 on one project that I
did back last year.
Fredrik - While I'm sure you have most/all of these, if not
maybe you would have someone download them and put them on
your Pythonware site. I found them extremely difficult to
find and others would benefit I'm sure. Just a suggestion.

When I had my system adminstrator to install the fonts file, we could not
download it from http://effbot.org/pil/pilfonts.zip, because the webpage
has changed much. We also tried to find the fonts file on web but failed.
Would you like to tell me other links from which I can download the fonts
file? Or sent the fonts file to me by email, if you'd like.
I really appreciate your help.
