Tutorial Description

A Mac montage show this week, but with a bit of a theme.

And the theme is Fonts on OSX.

In this multipart show I explore the hidden virtues of FontBook, an application included with OSX to manage, organise and repair your fonts. I also take a look at the standard Font Panel accessible by many OSX apps to format and tweak your text. One further related section is a new Alfred workflow I found that allows you to easily search for and select "special" characters from Alfred itself.

Finishing off with a very cool, free web service that allows you to create hi res photos of your Mac or iOS screenshots, superimposed on actual photos of Apple gear - very smart!

This full tutorial includes sections on:

  • Font Book
  • Installing Fonts & Font Libraries
  • Font Collections
  • Previewing Fonts
  • Troubleshooting Fonts
  • Using the OSX Font Panel
  • Alfred Workflow: Symbols - Link
  • Placeit by Breezi - Link

It looks like the Breezi webservice is down.
