Create Font from Image Letters with Glyphtracer

Glyphtracer is a free and open source font creator application for Linux, Windows and MacOS. It is written in python and released under GNU General Public License. Using Glyphtracer you can convert images of letters to a font. Actually it recognizes all letters in a image and lets the user tag each letter to a Unicode code point and converts the images to vector and writes them to a FontForge’s data format.
