Hello, i'm searching for a font, but since I can t find it, i tried to use Photoshop with the pen tool. This won t work though. Is there another program from Adobe that would be able to make the font? It's the font that says "bardt" on my website www.bardt.be . I tried whatdafont But it can t find anything... The problem is that it takes a while with the pentool for the whole alphabet. Would it be possible in Photoshop to make a quick selection but still make it a vector?

Thanks for the reply!

You can convert selections to paths - but it won't be as high quality as the original font.

And you might want to examine the HTML for that page -- that text is HTML, not an image.

Thanks for the reply, Chris!

What do you mean with "examine the html"?

Look at the HTML for that page -- the type you mentioned is HTML text, not an image. You should be able to determine the font from the HTML/CSS.
