Re: different fonts in the same caption

I have came up with an excellent solution. I found a program call text2image.exe. It will convert an RTF file to many image formats. The website for this is http://www.xuebrothers.net/. The price was only $9.99. They have a lot of other neat program also.

different fonts in the same caption

Is there a way to do 2 different fonts in the same caption? Say I was doing "this is a test of different fonts" and I wanted "this is a" in courier, "test of different" in arial and "fonts" in verdana. Can I do this or do I need to create 3 images and merge them?

Change font leading and tracking

I am trying to find a way to use different leading(line spacing) and tracking(character spacing) for a selected font using caption. Is there a way to do this and if so, how?

Re: Problems proportioning an image

That makes some sense, but then how do printers print at high dpi's? when I add this text at 16 point, it looks much different than if I add it at 80 point. if I am entering text at 16 point at 100 dpi, how do I get the same image at 500 dpi without using 80 point font and creating it?

Re: Problem with a convert

I believe that I figured it out. I had quotes around the caption file after the @ sign. I took them out and the error went away.

Thanks

Also, if your solution will still work, please show me how I can start with the start.png and do 2 of the annotations that you suggested.
