I need a reverse font engine
self | July 30, 2012 | knarf

Posted on 07/30/2012 5:42:31 PM PDT by knarf

I've looked around ..


TOPICS: Arts/Photography; Chit/Chat; Computers/Internet
KEYWORDS: font; fubo; mirrorfont; reversefont
and I can't seem to download a program that I can type and get it to reverse.

I re-painted my mailbox, and years ago I was able to type my name into a box, click sometyhing and it was reversed so I could print it out and rub the ink onto the box and paint over the cool font I had selected.

The best I've been able to do is reverse the letters, but they were facing "right", thus would not properly transfer as a mirror.

I don't have Excle nor Word

MS Paint. Type text then flip horizontal.

Too bad you don’t have photoshop.

Type it in the font and size you like then flip it horizontally.

If you have Windows, you have MS Paint.

You can type your text into a text box on Paint, then use the 'Select' tool to flip it over (horizontal flip). Then print the resulting mirror-image out using your printer.

One work-around would be to paste it into ms paint and flip it there.

Well, you can go into MS PAINT and do it.

Place some text on the page.

Using the square-dotted SELECTION tool, select around the text. Then ‘FLIP’ it (under EDIT).

Many printer drivers I’ve worked with allow you to select “T-Shirt Transfer” for print medium. That flips the image for you when you do the print.

Try a google search for backward font. I think that the link above has some good examples

no, cause if you rub that as a transfer, it's upsidedown ...

Is that how YOUR mailbox looks ?

Both Gimp and Imagemagick will “mirror”.

Both are Open Source.

Both have Windows ports.

Both are free.

I was a heavy user of Creative Suites (photoshop+) and Gimp. In many respects I prefer Gimp.

Try it, you will like it.

Imagemagick will batch process image manipulation. It is a command line tool but extremely powerful. There are GUI interfaces for it in Linux, not sure about Windows.

I created and posted that literally within three minutes after seeing your thread. Here you go.

Gotta say, if this is what you were looking for you must not have looked very hard, lol.

Every printer I’ve ever owned has a “Mirror image” setting available under “Printer Preferences” - turn it on when you want mirror image but don’t forget to reset it after you’re done.

Thanks for the link to fotoflexer! It has a few more features than the program I’m currently using.
