My fascination with typographic art is massaged regularly by clever Mac apps which do in seconds what once took an hour or two– turning graphic designs into typographic artwork.
Examples don’t get much simpler or more self explanatory than this.
Select a graphic design. Select a font. Drop in the text, and click… Textify turns the graphic into a typographic piece of art.
You can customize the text, fonts, colors, and sizes, and Textify supports all the Mac’s system fonts from four additional special fonts.
Previewing is instant so you get to see the artwork change in real time.
Finished files can be exported as PDFs, JPGs, PNGs, even TIFFs, and Textify is completely social with instant sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Email, iMessage, AirDrop, or add to iPhoto or Aperture, or upload to Flickr or simply save it or save it as a Desktop wallpaper image.
Wait. There’s more!
Textify comes with 50 built-in templates which helps reduce the already speedy learning curve. This isn’t the kind of graphic design you’ll use every day, but it’s nice to have a utility which makes turns graphics into typographic art with just a few clicks.
Take that, Photoshop!
