Lost+Found Gimp Freetype

17 Favourites
This is the Windows version of the Gimp freetype plugin that for some reason went missed in latest Gimp 2.4

There is no compatibility issue in gimp 2.4 Freetype plugin work as before

But was hard to find NO download link available.

And the Freetype plugin is a must have so i decide to offer also from here


Simply move "freetype.exe" in C:/document and setting/gimp/plugin

All this is under GPL licence
Link for sorce code are included as other useful link

a how to use and a tutorial are too included

I have no merit in writing compiling or even tracing this plugin, but only o try to provide a more visible download link

Thanks for providing the download. All the others I found were broken. It would be more useful if it had capability to adjust kerning between characters. :( but useful, none-the-less.
Thanks PC for keeping this plugin available .

what you use windows XP or vista?

In xp you may click on "computer resources" then on "C" (if C is the name of your HD) then you will see "Documents and Settings" and inside a folder with your name, then a.gimp folder

Almost the same for VISTA except that you will see "Users" instead then "Documents and Settings"
