Microworld Sharptype is a filter plug-in for Photoshop, it mainly concerns on generating ultra-clear type at small point sizes in Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint Shop Pro, PHOTO-PAINT, Painter or any compatible host. Sharptype can provide far sharper type than the built-in Photoshop engine, which will improve your compositions' readability dramatically. Sharptype is similar to Microsoft Cleartype and Adobe Cooltype, it uses a distinct method to render font, and does not use functional routines provided by operating system, and however, it optimizes vector information to sharpen the vertical and horizontal lines. Sharptype provides 5 rendering methods and 3 enhancing modes, and currently has support of Truetype and Opentype fonts. Flexible combination of bold, italic, outline, underline and strikethrough rendering styles, font preview, can search additional user defined font directory other than system default, built-in character map makes the insertion for figure fonts easier. Global encoding and native keyboard layout enable us to support multiple languages inside one unique version.
