Text2PNG Converts Text to PNG with Javascript

Posted · Category: Fonts, Tools

Remember the time when we are creating graphical headlines and navigations of special fonts in Photoshop, optimize and save the image into GIF or PNG formats, and then upload it to the server. If we would like to change the text for the headlines, we need to do the whole process once again. Now, you do not have to do it in this clumsy way and you do not have to do it with Flash either. Text2PNG can do that for you automatically.

Text2PNG provides webmasters the ability to convert their website headlines and navigations to PNG images automatically. The process is very simple, you just code your headlines in usual HTML and CSS with an element ID. And then by adding a small JavaScript file and selecting which tags to replace, it will replace the selected headlines into graphical PNG format with your chosen font. How easy is that! You can view the example below.


In order to speed up the process of the script, they cache all the image on the browser cache and on the server. Each PNG image expiration is set to ten years from the day it’s created. However, you can always update the images on your site when the content is changed. The new images will be generated and cached again.

You can have a look at the fonts they support. If you would like to use the script in your blog or other content management system, you can use the Font Selection Tool, which allows you to select the font you need for your website easily. You can have a look at the screenshot below.

Em Based Layouts Vertical Rhythm Calculator

Posted · Category: Fonts, License Free, Tools

Typography on the web has become a point of focus for standards based developers recently. One of the key concepts that we can use within our sites is consistent line-height in CSS terms. If you think of a ruled notebook, the lines are all equal heights.

The concept is fairly straight forward but in practice can be confusing especially for a CSS newcomer. All sizing needs to be relative to the base size. This allows for easy scaling up or down while keeping the required spacing and layout consistent, this can be refereed to as an elastic layout. To allow this we need to specify measurements in percent or em. Em calculator save you the hassle of all of those calculations.

Multi-color sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) is a technology that allows you to replace text elements on screen with Flash equivalents with colors. sIFR is a DOM replacement method originally conceived by Shaun Inman and turned into a high quality cross-browser, cross-platform typography solution for the masses.

sIFR allows website headings, pull-quotes and other elements to be styled in whatever font the designer chooses without the user having it installed on their machine.

Multi-color sFIR implementation is easy – just add sEmColor:”#FF4400″, sStrongColor:”#FF0000″ and sSpanColor:”#EE6600″ into your named argument call function at the bottom of the .html file and if the script finds a <strong>, <em> or <span> elements, each one will be colored3. And they can be nested, too.
