The e-commerce.

String/Text rendering -> GIF


Recommended Posts

For an even better visual appearance I'd like to have the shop categories not being displayed as a text rather than rendered as it's done by Photoshop.

For example like it is done at: http://www.target.com


What PHP control/component delivers the best results / font rendering quality (in view of hinting / kerning / TrueType, Postscript Type1, OpenType support etc.) ?

there are a few ways to realize it. In this case only the main-categories are images. So i think, the main categories was made manual. An example and code you can find here: http://forums.oscommerce.de/index.php?show...19entry112719



EDIT: I forgot, there is already a contribution for --> http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contri...earch,categorie


Best Regards and see you soon on the german board ;)

Hi Alex,


always a pleasure to see you around!

I intend now to render the category as images (in Photoshop), they won't change nearly at all and for other areas (specials etc.) I think Flash will deliver excellent results here. Then passing over the strings, url to product etc. via GET to the swf movie.
