How to Create a JPEG File With Telugu Letters

by Paul Higgins

If you want to create a JPEG picture file that contains characters from the Telugu alphabet, you can do so by using Paint, a graphics editor present in all versions of the Windows operating system. Telugu is a dialect spoken in several Indian provinces. This dialect uses a specific alphabet which contains 60 different characters. You can create a JPEG picture file that contains Telugu characters by, first, downloading and installing the Telugu font on your computer and, then, creating the picture with Paint.

Installing the Telugu Font

Step 1

Visit the website — see Resources — and click on the "Fonts" tab.

Step 2

Right-click on the download link for the font and select "Save link as..."

Step 3

Use the file browser to locate Windows' font directory. On most computers, the default Windows font directory is located in "C:\Windows\fonts".

Click on the "Save" button.

Creating the JPEG Picture

Step 1

Open Paint by clicking on its shortcut in the "Accessories" folder of the Start menu. Paint will automatically generate a new blank canvas. However, if you prefer to add Telugu characters to an existing picture, click on the "Paint" button and select "Open." Locate the file on your hard drive and click on the "Open" button.

Step 2

Click on the "Text" button in the "Home" section of the ribbon and click anywhere inside the canvas.

Step 3

Select "Akshar" from the fonts drop-down menu that appeared in the ribbon, at the top of the window.

Step 4

Click on the canvas again and type the text you want to insert.

Click on the "Paint" icon at the top-left of the program's interface and select "Save as." Select "JPEG" from the "File type" menu, name your file and click on "Save."
