New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Couldn’t find what I was looking for, my question is about uploading images…
When exporting a png file from Adobe Illustrator (CS5), you got the option »Type Optimized (Hinting)«. To me type in these pngs looks as crisp as in a pdf file with the font embedded. I’m not sure if this was possible in older versions. The only difference I see is that in a pdf, you can zoom in. Is there another advantage of pdfs? (For posting on typophile)
Although I read the threads about pdfs and font piracy, and I think that the people who steal fonts from pdfs would simply take it from somewhere else, I would feel better anyway if I don’t have to upload a pdf with the (unfinished) font, just to minimize the possibilitys for pirates.
Instead of a pdf, one could upload the same picture as »type optimized« pngs in different sizes. What do you think about that?
