Design with Superior Typefaces
Adobe fonts offer reliable quality whether output to inkjet printers, laser printers, imagesetters, or platesetters. Advertisers can enhance marketing materials by creating animated GIFs and other typographically rich elements for Web pages or by adding high-impact title effects to digital video and multimedia projects.
Font Folio 11 offers special Opticals packages that provide four or more separate designs for each font, each optimized for a different range of point sizes, from tiny text for footnotes to large type for headlines. Many of the OpenType fonts in Adobe Font Folio 11 contain an expanded glyph set and advanced typographic features, providing designers with the ability to enhance their compositions with typographic extras such as swashes, small caps, and old-style figures.
Create with OpenType Flexibility
The OpenType format displays and prints fonts seamlessly on Macs and PCs and can be used alongside existing font formats in all documents. The OpenType features of Adobe InDesignÂ® CS3 also take advantage of extended features of many of the fonts in Font Folio 11. In addition, printers can easily publish multilingual documents with Font Folio 11 Unicode support, including Central and Eastern European languages, as well as Japanese, Greek, and Cyrillic.
