What is a bitmap font?

A bitmap font is a font in which every glyph is a picture. Other names for bitmap fonts are photo fonts, picture fonts, image fonts, raster fonts, texture fonts and handmade fonts.

Bitmap fonts are full colour

Vector fonts like TrueType and OpenType do not contain colour information. In contrast, bitmap fonts are full colour!

Bitmap fonts are highly detailed

Complex shapes are difficult to vectorize and expensive to render. Bitmap fonts can handle small details much more efficiently!
