Project: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Blended Font (Or Letter Blender)

This Demonstration takes two images of a letter in two different fonts and blends them. The user can choose both unique fonts from a predefined list as well as any letter in the English alphabet to blend. In addition, the user can choose to view the blended font with an overlay that shows the outline of the original letter (there is one overlay for the first font and one overlay for the second font). The overlays are generated from the corners of the letters and their purpose is to illustrate how the two letters blended. The user can also adjust the resolution of the final blended image to increase blending speed.
