Distributing PDF and PS Fonts with an Application

The ImageGear toolkit comes with multiple PDF and PS fonts that can be used for developing an application based on ImageGear. However, only four fonts are pre-licensed for distribution:

These fonts are the property of Adobe® Systems and are fully licensed for distribution with your application.

If you need to distribute the additional fonts, you need to get a license for the redistribution of those fonts. You are however not limited to the fonts supplied with ImageGear; it is possible to add other fonts to be used with ImageGear PDF/PostScript support. To do this, place your fonts to the PDF Resource directory as follows:

Please also note that the fonts that are pre-licensed for distribution (i.e., AdobeSansMM, AdobeSerifMM, "Courier" and "NotDefFont") provide the substitution capabilities for the other fonts, so they are likely to be enough for many cases.
