Developer's Blog

Developer Page

This is just a spot that I'm going to be posting some of the applications that I've worked on over the years from my portfolio or from past projects.

Simplified Font Browser

This is a font browser that lets you see the character set for each font on your system. It is useful for graphic artists, designers and Copy Editors alike, or anyone who works with text and wants a way to checkout their system's fonts in order to make a selection. It sits in the tray area after its installed and will run with Windows every time thereafter until you uninstall it. There is no spyware or any other malicious software attached to it although by looking at the tray icon you might think otherwise (it's animated).

A future version will include text search of fonts by name, and possibly filtering by font family. It is still a work in progress and may change frequently dependent upon the interest in it. It is specifically written as a sort of simple portfolio piece.

Like LW Image Fix and many others I have in progress, It was written in Borland Delphi a few years ago, and recently updated and cleaned up for release with Embarcadero Delphi XE4, a great progression of the Delphi IDE into the world of modern automated development and build process.

If you have any feature requests please post them in the comments section below and if they are feasible, I'll include them along with a little scrolly note on the about page with handle and the feature added.

LW Image Fix

This is an application that was designed to deal with the watermarked images output by the demo version of Lightwave 9 a few years ago just to clean them up enough for you to use in a portfolio or for a demo in order to get a gig. The output is not production quality and you should definitely consider buying the full product as it is an incredible rendering software. You can find it at an authorized Newtek dealer both here and here.
