MacVoices #771 – Jeff Gamet’s Font Management Utility Picks, MacBook Pros for Graphics Professionals and More


Jeff Gamet, the author of Designer’s Guide to Mac OS X Tiger, Contributing Editor for Design Tools Monthly and columnist for InDesign magazine and Layers magazine and the newly minted “Font Witchdoctor” is back in the second of a two-part discussion on one of his favorite topics, fonts. Jeff talks about why every Mac user would benefit from font management software, not just the pros, why Adobe Creative Suite 3 users need to pay particular attention to what font management tools work with their favorite programs, and why the newest MacBook Pro laptops represent almost no compromises for the graphics professional, especially when Leopard ships.
