Editors' Review

Download.com staff
While many designers use high-end graphics applications to add effects to text, this program provides a more specialized and economical solution for stylizing TrueType fonts.

The program has many unique features, such as the randomizer, which generates a series of random text effects and displays the results in a slide show window. Output options are plentiful, but in order to retain a fully editable vector image, you must save your text as a FontTwister file (FTF).

Some of the preset and random effects are cheesy, but the program gives you extensive control over each effect so you can design text effects to meet specific needs. What's more, the developer's Web site has many additional styles, textures, and fonts that you can download for free. All in all, FontTwister is intelligently designed and easy to use.

Developer's Description

Create impressive text effects for web pages, logos and YouTube thumbnails.
You don't have to be a graphic designer to produce professional text effects with FontTwister. This program is designed to add a range of logos, letter headings or banners without having to struggle for hours with Word's design features, or clumsy programs which only have a limited library of texts to work with. The FontTwister also allows you to add glowing backgrounds, transparency and embossing, and create texture, blurs or shadows to your words, along with many other features. As a YouTube thumbnail maker, FontTwister offers a variety of free thumbnail templates. It works with Windows and with Mac through the Crossover feature, and this can also allow it to work for Linux customers too. Overall, the text effects of the program are great, with dynamic images which can be ideal when a company wants to change its image without employing a professional designer. It can also be sued to create dynamic images which can be put on to a webpage, perhaps as a logo for a new brand, or for a blog. Being able to use the FontTwister cuts down on the amount of effort you have to put into text before you get a professional-looking design, and you can create and reject a design in minutes, spending all day getting the perfect look if you choose. The program works with all TrueType fonts, including those for both Windows and Apple, so you could change any text you want. Rather than pay good money for another boring typeface which doesn't inspire enthusiasm in your workforce, or interest in your blog readers, using FontTwister can easily give you exactly what you want.
