    So I don't know how or if this is possible. But is there a way for me to be able to make a font out of my own handwriting and save that into photoshop? I've always wondered if I can do this so I can digitally type things and make it look like i wrote it.

    To create a font you need a program like this one: Fontographer

    At US$350, Fontographer is a little overkill for most people. TypeTool at $99 might be better for those wanting to mess around with this idea.

    Thanks BV, that's a much better idea. Fontographer was the only one I was familiar with.

    There used to be advertising in PC Magazine or one of the other Windows-related magazines so that you would fill out the letters as requested, send the card and your US$40 and they would provide you with a typeface, just for you. Maybe, they're still doing the service.

    Yeah I remember that my computer design teacher told me about it and actually tried it to see the results.....I was BLOWN away to see that for a mere 40 bones you could actually type just as you can handwrite!
    I tried to use an old version of FONTOGRAPHER on an ol' PC and for the life of me I could not save the fonts i was manipulating, so i discarded it and never looked back!
