6.1.2 Image to font conversion

Once you can see what is in the image, the next step is to prepare the IFI file (see section 6.2 IFI files) corresponding to its characters. Imageto relies completely on the IFI files to describe the image; it makes no attempt at optical character recognition, i.e., guessing what the characters are from their shapes.

You must also decide on a few more aspects of the output font, which you specify with options:

The final invocation to produce the font might look something like this:

 
imageto -baselines=121,130,120 -designsize=26 ggmr

The output from this would be `ggmr26.1200gf'.
