(#) The video primarily explains, in 'zoomed in' mode, the important aspects of Azhagi+, to help one to type in the widely used Adobe PhotoShop and Adobe Illustrator applications, using the very popular STMZH and RGB Tamil fonts.
Using the converterUsing the converter for plain text Tamil fonts conversion is extremely simple. For example, if you wish to convert from Unicode encoding (i.e. from Tamil texts in Latha, Vijaya, Nirmala Ui, etc. fonts) to Bamini font encoding (i.e. Tamil text in Bamini font), then, all you have to do is simply the following.
- Choose Unicode for 'from this font encoding'.
- Choose Bamini for 'to this font encoding'.
- Paste your Unicode text in the left side box.
- Click on 'Convert' button.
- The converted text will appear in the right side box.
- Thats all to it. You can copy/paste the converted text in the right side to wherever you want to.
- Note: 'Latha' and 'Bamini' are automatically chosen by the converter itself and since Latha is of Unicode encoding and Bamini is of Bamini encoding.
