I was wondering if CF is capable of loading external fonts,
into it's process.
simply what I am trying to do is create dynamic images which
have text with custom fonts styles.
is this possible with CF..?
there are several options that i know (all on win-based
they all include changing settings in cf administrator - so
if you are
on a shared hosting you are out of luck...
1) install the fonts as usual in windows (Control Panel ->
after cf server restart it will pick up the new fonts
2) put the font files in some CF-accessible folder and
folder as additional fonts directory in CF Admin (under
-> Font Management -> Register New Font(s) with
ColdFusion [browser to a
font file or fonts folder])
you may be able to utilise Java font (or are they string?)
to utilise an arbitrary font - but that is beyond my
